Tom's Topical Tips

I am not a great fan of gardening books in general, Hessayon being a brilliant exception, very simple to follow and not full of unnecessary information.

However, one book I do have, and which I think most people would love, is "The complete old wives' lore for gardeners" (isbn 0-370-31379-8) by Bridget and Maureen Boland. Sadly I suspect it is out of print, but somewhere second hand copies must be available. It is amusing and a good read even if you are not a gardener. Do try and find a copy, I promise you will not regret it. Tom

General

Keep on top of the weeding.

Crop of the Month

Broad Beans

An easy to grow crop which rarely fails.

Broad Beans freeze well so any glut can be frozen for later use.
