Win The Salad Garden by Joy Larkcom

Win a copy of revamped gardening book classic plus review

The Salad Garden by Joy Larkcom
The Salad Garden by Joy Larkcom

The Salad Garden by Joy Larkcom is one of the gardening world’s classic books – and you can win an updated version in this week’s competition.

Tagged as ‘the book of the century’ by horticulturist Michael Michaud, it was first published in 1984, and was hailed as a game-changer by professionals and keen amateur gardeners alike.

The original book was inspired by Joy’s year-long ‘Grand Vegetable Tour’ around Europe with her family and later trials with oriental vegetables.

The name is a slight misnomer – there are more than 200 vegetables, wild plants, herbs, etc covered at length in its nearly 300 pages – not just salad ‘leaves’ but everything you could possibly put in a salad. Continue reading “Win The Salad Garden by Joy Larkcom”

Win 101 Organic Gardening Hacks book

Great ideas for the creative organic gardener

101 Organic Gardening Hacks by Shawna Coronado
101 Organic Gardening Hacks by Shawna Coronado

It’s competition time again on again and this week you can win a copy of new book 101 Organic Gardening Hacks by Shawna Coronado.

The word ‘hack’ is a bone of contention with me (I just don’t like the word, sorry) but there my criticism ends – Shawna’s book, based on ideas that work in her own garden, are a real inspiration, especially if you’re short on cash.

They are innovative, creative and successful – a garden bench she created from leftover wood posts and a few cinder blocks, or the rows of wine bottles buried soldier-style along a winding pathway, (I had one of these with beer Continue reading “Win 101 Organic Gardening Hacks book”
