Praise For…


“Nancy has done it again! The perfect read taking us back to basics in our gardens. As a beginner gardener I am now excited to get started, I'll be a pro by the end of the year!” —Sophie Liard, The Folding Lady

“I, like Nancy, am happiest in my garden. But I am yet to properly venture into growing food we actually eat because I am never quite sure if I am doing it right. Having Nancy's reassuring voice guide me through it all will fill me with the confidence needed to give it a whirl! I recently redesigned my own garden so I could grow more food and without a doubt I know this book will be kept in the greenhouse and constantly referred to time and time again. When in a home or garden pickle, I often think, "What does Nancy say about this?" and there is always something to try! Everyone should have her collection of books at home!” —Daisy Upton, The Five Minute Mum
