“Klaus has spent many years learning the art and craft of vegetable growing, experimenting with different plants and techniques, and passing on his knowledge to countless students of all ages.
The last ten years have been spent in Ireland, where you could say that his teacher has been the Irish climate and Irish conditions. So he has mastered the vagaries of boggy soils, high rainfall, the most common pests and diseases, and has distilled what he has learnt into this book.
It embraces everything from lazy beds to green manuring: there’s even a section on the common mistakes beginners make.
This book will be an invaluable source of information for vegetable growers here –novices and experienced alike.”
