Description

The Royal Horticultural Society The 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.

The author

Lia Leendertz is a regular contributor to the Garden, Gardens Illustrated, the Guardian, the Telegraph, and more, and is the author of Family Garden and The Twilight Garden. Lia shares an allotment with several friends near her home in Bristol. She has an award-winning blog, Midnight Brambling.

The RHS Lindley Libraries hold several collections of drawings made by Asian artists, whether made for the export market to Europe, commissioned by British officials, or, in recent times, made by amateur and professional artists for exhibition and sale in the international market for botanical art. This diary contains examples from some of these collections.

Make a Pet Bowl Holder Out of a Pallet
Let’s face it, dogs just aren’t tidy eaters. (Well, most aren’t, anyway.) During their happy eating bonanza, water is splashed and drooled onto the floor, bowls are scattered, and paws help spread the mess once the meal is done. Towels and mops are usually involved afterward. Chris Peterson shares a pet bowl holder project in ...
