An allotment garden, usually simply referred to as an allotment, is a small piece of land typically used for the non-commercial growing of food plants. First published in 1917, "The Allotment Book" contains simple instructions and step-by-step directions for planning, setting up, and maintaining a successful allotment, with chapters on preparation, tools and equipment, the best plants to grow, and much more. Contents include: "Taking a New Allotment", "How to Handle an Old Plot", "The 10-Perch Plot", "The 20-Perch Plot", "The 30-Perch Plot", "The 40-Perch Plot", "The 80-Perch Plot", "The 120-Perch Plot", "The 160-Perch Plot", "The Year's Work at a Glance", "How to Grow Vegetables", "Using a Home-made Frame", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on kitchen gardening.
