As ambitious as it’s appealing, his Veg in One Bed will probably persuade most backyard veggie growers to expand their plots before the first season is even over.

Huw has a mission - to help us all to grow some of our own food. In his three books to date he’s addressed our most common excuses: I don’t have the space, I can’t afford it, I don’t know how to do it. In this, his first, he shows us how to grow 19 different vegetables in a year in just a 3m x 1.2m raised bed.
