Essential for all allotment owners, this book features the non-growing side of successful allotment gardening, concentrating on the more functional elements of a typical plot. Clearly defined by season, the projects range from basic to complex - like building a shed - and are presented with step-by-step instructions.

Having an allotment, or at least growing some of your own fruit and vegetables, is currently very popular. This book features the non-growing side of allotment gardening; the more practical and functional elements of a typical plot. Clearly defined by season the projects are further broken down into twelve monthly chapters with appropriate projects and techniques in each. All projects are illustrated by step-by-step photography and artwork. Projects range from very basic and intermediate - presented on one page to two double-page spreads to those larger, more complex tasks, such as building a shed, which will be treated as a feature.

Paul Wagland is an RHS-qualified gardener and an experienced writer and designer. He specialises in the practical side of horticulture, from landscaping and outdoor DIY to growing fruit and veg. With a firm belief that a well-maintained garden can add considerable value to a home, Paul has redesigned and renovated many neglected plots for both enjoyment and profit. He is the former editor of two popular gardening magazines (Pond & Gardening and Grow Your Own) and divides most of his free time between his own garden and three allotments in suburban Essex.
