From the Author
While the concept of a raised bed garden, or even growing vegetables in containers is nothing new; the fact that it has captured the imagination of city dwellers and country folks alike, certainly seems to be! It is certainly a good community builder, as it makes a good talking point around anyone who is the least bit environmentally aware - or just plain like's gardening!
Why? Well in my mind it's simple really. With all the talk of austerity measures, and 'low carbon footprint' coupled with the growing understanding that it really is better for you, when you eat your own food grown by your own hands; the world's population is slowly awakening to the exciting concept of being self-sufficient whenever possible.
Raised beds have long been used and promoted, by environmentalists and keen gardeners alike; as a way of getting the best production from a small area of ground, whether it be vegetables or fruit - even flowers you intend growing.
This five book bundle on growing vegetables in raised beds and containers, is an ideal introduction to this particular gardening technique. There is even included a quick information guide on 'Ten good reasons for growing vegetables in a raised bed garden' just in case you have any doubts about the efficiency of raised beds.
If you are new to the concept of growing in raised beds, I hope you will be encouraged by these books; and if indeed you are an 'old hand' with regards to this technique, I trust that even you, will find something interesting and worthwhile within these pages.
