The methods described have been tried-and-tested by people who have sight loss and you’ll find top tips from members of the National Blind Gardeners’ Club. The book covers all areas for planning your food garden, getting ready, seed sowing, planting and watering.

A month-by-month year planner tells you when to sow, maintain, plant and harvest vegetable and fruit garden staples throughout the year. We’ve kept things simple, so you can get started without fuss. The book also gives advice on how to extend your vegetable growing season through most months of the year by using protected growing.
Finally, we cover the basics of crop rotation, feeding, composting and pests and diseases.
