Overview

Green-fingered Terry Walton has been growing his own vegetables and fruit since he was a child. Now, with over fifty years of successful organic gardening behind him, it is little wonder that the advice he offers readers at Saga or listeners of the Jeremy Vine show has brought him an ardent following of allotment and grow-your-own gardeners nationwide.

The result is the perfect companion, combining technical help and reassurance - with an ever-wry eye on what Terry’s fellow allotmenteers in the Rhondda valley are up to - in a month-by-month calendar of life on his now-famous plot, and detailing:





What to look out for each month



Plot progress – from the first shoots of new life in January to sowing for a new season at the end of the year



Tasks for the month, both outside and in the greenhouse



What to prepare for in the month ahead.

Meet the Author

Terry Walton was born in 1946 in the Rhondda, and has lived in South Wales all his life. He has gardened on the same allotment since the age of four. Terry's 'working life' was spent for the most part with a local company, where he became managing director. When he retired he was able to focus on his allotment where he was discovered by Radio 2's Jeremy Vine Show team. Terry gives updates live from his hillside plot every fortnight. He is also on the Jamie & Louise show on BBC Wales Radio once a month in studio, BBC Radio Hereford & Worc once a month live from the allotment, and makes appearances on Channel 4 Super Scrimpers to give his gardening tips.
