Sowing, Spacing, Planting, Picking, Watering and More
How to be successful in growing vegetables
In ‘Skills for Growing’ I share the knowledge and techniques you need for success in all aspects of vegetable gardening, based on my decades of experience.
My desire is to save you time, effort and money, through making all your inputs effective. From seeds and water, to the space in your garden. There are three chapters with vital information about spacing, and a harvesting table for easier planning of second plantings to keep space full.
I advise on how to create planting plans, succeed with succession and reduce rotation. There are chapters on saving your own seed, propagation, multisowing, spacing for all common vegetables, methods of harvesting and how they influence growth, watering (both when and how much) and using covers for warmth as well as pest protection. I also describe successful winter gardening, and growing perennial vegetables.
The book is 56000 words and comprises 5 parts for the 17 chapters, all illustrated with beautiful, captioned photos from my no dig, organic garden in Somerset, Southwest UK.
The book is a fantastic resource for anyone wishing to learn new skills, or to improve and tune the skills they already have, in order to grow bigger and healthier harvests from a given space.
You can now buy the contents of this book plus two extra lessons, as an online course of the same name, from my website. There are more than 50 videos in this course. One half of them are not available elsewhere, plus we added few brief quizzes to keep you on track with absorbing all the information. As a special introduction, the course is half price from now until 31st December 2021.
