From a gardener who has been working on his allotment for over 50 years comes this brilliant guide to organic vegetable growing and allotment life in general. Month by month, Terry offers helpful advice, ranging from key crops, progress report, what to watch out for, main tasks for the month, and some allotment tales. With all the charm that shone through My Life on a Hillside Allotment, Terry takes the gardening reader by the hand and leads them through the gardening year. He is the perfect companion, giving technical help, quick tips, reassurance, and plenty of entertainment along the way.

Author Biography

Terry Walton has gardened on the same allotment since the age of four. When he retired he began focusing on his allotment, where he was discovered by Radio 2's Jeremy Vine Show team. Terry gives updates live from his hillside plot every fortnight. He is also on the Jamie & Louise show on BBC Wales Radio once a month in studio, BBC Radio Hereford & Worc once a month live from the allotment, and makes appearances on Channel 4 Super Scrimpers to give his gardening tips.
