Banyen's Description: 

Winter and early spring require a different kind of gardening than the summer months: not a lot grows at this time, but a well-planned plot may nonetheless be quite full—in the maritime west. You need to plan carefully, and well ahead, sowing and planting at specific times through the year, so the main part of the book is an extensive month-by-month sowing, planting and growing calendar. Further sections cover harvesting, from garlic in July right through to the last of the overwintered greens in May, and storing your produce.

How to Grow Winter Vegetables explains how to have plenty of vegetables to eat during the winter months, both stored and fresh. Through winter, soil is cool and transforms the plot into a large outdoor larder where many vegetables keep healthy and alive, ready for harvesting when needed.

Stunning photographs from the author’s gardens in
Somerset
(climate much like maritime Pacific) inspire and instruct.

Charles Dowding has been growing organic vegetables for over 30 years. Other books by him are Organic Gardening the No Dig Way and Salad Greens for all Seasons.
