The New Vegetable Growers Handbook

A Users Manual for the Vegetable Garden

by Frank Tozer

The New Vegetable Growers Handbook is an updated version of Frank Tozer’s acclaimed book The Vegetable Growers Handbook. Like the original, it covers every aspect of growing all of the common crops (and a number of uncommon ones). As a long-time home gardener, the author knows exactly what information you need to succeed and presents it in a clear, thorough, and even entertaining fashion. There are step-by-step instructions on soil preparation, variety selection, raising transplants, direct sowing, watering, protection, harvesting, storage, seed saving, and much more. He doesn’t just tell you what to do and when to do it, he also tells you why, by explaining in detail how crops grow and why they sometimes don’t. The original book received high marks from reader reviewers, with comments like “fantastic,” “my gardening bible,” and “this book provides more detailed and easy-to-read information on individual crops than any other gardening book I’ve seen.” This new, revised edition has been expanded by 50 percent, with more information on more crops, with the aim of creating the most useful and practical book on vegetable gardening available anywhere.
