    The RHS HALF HOUR ALLOTMENT (first published in 2005) has been a best-selling gardening title for Frances Lincoln and the Royal Horticultural Society with extraordinary reviews and five-star recommendations on Amazon. This new edition re-presents the classic in a fresh new illustrated format with hundreds of new photographs and a bright new design. Half Hour Allotment is author Lia Leendertz's first book and she is now well-known and respected as an author and garden writer for The Guardian newspaper, Gardens Illustrated and The Simple Things magazines. The first edition has sold 11,272 copies through TCM since 2006. This will be a highly illustrated giftable edition of a great book. The book explains the philosophy of spending half an hour each day on the allotment in order to produce something to harvest and eat every day. This tried-and-tested formula is clearly explained with weekly work plans and time-efficient solutions for busy gardeners who want to spend every moment preciously. Lia outlines the best crops to grow, the best varieties within each crop, and shows how to arrange and equip your allotment so that it is a place of interest for you, your family and visiting wildlife. Lia is an organic gardener with a great sensitivity for the environment so the book is a gentle and thoughtful read as well as being a bible for productive and time-starved gardeners. Lia lives and gardens in Bristol, England.

    Food can be grown just about anywhere, and lack of space should not put you off growing and enjoying the taste of your own fresh vegetables. Not everyone has access to outside space or what we traditionally think of as a garden, but we all have window ledges, doorways, often stairways, sometimes even a balcony or roof space. This book offers solutions and inspirations for these tricky spots that we frequently overlook or neglect, and highlights some unusual growing spaces such as a minuscule balcony in Bristol, an innovative installation of hexagonal polytunnels full of salad leaves in Amiens, France, and an ingenious self-sufficient growing system that provides a wealth of vegetables in an old swimming pool in Phoenix, Arizona. Filled with practical advice, inspiration and planting and design ideas, My Tiny Veg Plot tells you how to prepare your beds whatever the size and situation; there is advice on filling containers, creating ingenious planters, using planting mediums, soil and water and which fruit and vegetables will thrive in which spot. My Tiny Veg Plot contains straightforward information on what to grow and how to grow it, from seed to ready to eat.
