The beginners' guide to growing fruit and veg Community Gardening has everything you need to leave the supermarket behind in favour of tastier and healthier home-grown fruit and veg. Avoid bland, pesticide-tainted produce flown in from the other side of the world and start growing your own with this reassuring guide, complete with a glossary of gardening terms and a picture gallery of common weeds. It covers 10 essential steps for bringing a new community garden plot to life and deciding what crops will grow best in the Australian climate. Look out for the in-depth growing instructions to over 70 different fruits, vegetables, and herbs, including local Australian varieties. What's more, included are simple step-by-step projects such as laying a path and erecting fencing; tips on storing, freezing and preserving to extend the life of your produce; and lots of exciting recipe ideas to help you make the most of your crops.
