About this deal

While I think the book glosses over some big challenges at times that maybe an American author might have been more conscious of (access to growing space, the luxury of free time to garden and source/use free materials), it does offer a lot of good ideas and practical tips for growing food on a budget. Lots of practical ideas for improving my garden: I have several I’ve already put into practice (composting and seed starting) and several more I’m eager to try (comfrey fertilizer).

Full details of your rights under the Distance Selling Regulations are available in the UK from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or your Local Authority's Trading Standards Office. Author is an expert and self taught gardener extraordinaire, and breaks down tasks into simple, well described activities and accompanying pictures illustrating his methods. What I like most about this book is that it pushes back on the recent depiction of edible gardening as something that is necessarily expensive, consumption-driven. I’ve long wanted to grow my own food, particularly as a way to get away from produce that only seems to arrive in plastic containers.This is a very informative book filled with lots of tips and tricks to start a garden from scratch without spending a ton of money. For further information about your statutory rights, contact your local authority Trading Standards department or consumer advice centre (for example the Citizen's Advice Bureau if you are in the UK).

Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item.The book has a fair amount of bad math, and would be improved if the "free" part were de-emphasized.
