THE latest in this excellent series of compact gardening guides, The Pocket Vegetable Expert is an A-Z guide to sowing, growing, harvesting and troubleshooting in the vege plot. A great gift idea for a beginner gardener - but with comprehensive information for experts too - it covers everything from crop rotation to preparing seed beds, liming, digging methods and how to maximise crops in small spaces. The plant care chapter is also in-depth, with sections on thinning, transplanting, mulching, watering, feeding, weeding, spraying, harvesting and storing your home-grown vegetables.
