“Think of Dee Nash as your favorite horticultural big sister. Pretty soon, your thumb will be green and your salad bowl will be filled with tasty greens you’ve grown yourself.”
– Debra Prinzing, author of Slow Flowers and The 50-Mile Bouquet

“If you’re looking for a book that combines practical food growing experience with innovation, humor and coun- try sense, look no further. Dee Nash is an enthusiastic garden coach who provides the basic know-how and the encouragement for young (and not-so-young) wannabe gardeners to start growing their own food.”
– Niki Jabbour, author of The Year Round Vegetable Gardener and Groundbreaking Food Gardens

“This is a book I would have liked to have had by my side when I first started trying to grow veg. Maybe instead of going for a large allotment straight away I would have followed Dee’s advice and started small and manageable with some pots on the patio.” – Helen Johnstone, The Patient Gardener.
