How Handy!


This book arrived on Monday. As you can see it was just in time for last month's Allotment Show - not. First published in 1953 (this is the seventh edition, updated this year), it contains many gems of advice to potential exhibitors, such as trimming fingernails prior to picking fruit or vegetables to prevent damage.

I ordered it on August 3rd - next time I'll order directly from the RHS instead of Amazon.

4/4/2014 - Anonymous comment spam came back with a vengeance today, so sadly I've had to halt this facility for a while for the sake of commenters who like to read what the genuine follow-up comments say.

If you're having problems leaving comments, you can contact me using the Contact Form at the foot of this page, or via vegplotting at gmail dot com, or @malvernmeet if a quick tweet is more convenient for you. That way I can get things sorted.
