The Vegetable Expert Reviews

"Provides essential basics about varieties and [...] easily absorbed panels of information giving key facts. There is stuff on where to sow and grow both the usual and more unusual vegetables, herbs and salads - from how to prepare your soil to how and when to harvest the produce." The Telegraph "Anyone wanting to grow their own veg should pick up this handy book." Daily Express "You could be forgiven for thinking you need to splash out on chatty, glitzy hardbacks, but all the information you need (and I mean all of it) is there in the paperback Expert series that Dr David Hessayon has been turning out since the 1970s on almost every aspect of gardening." Stephen Anderton, The Times
