Gardening book from Star columnist

Build a Better Vegetable Garden book.

A WEST Cork-based expert gardening duo have published a wonderful book to guide people through 30 easy-to-do vegetable projects.

Build a Better Vegetable Garden is written by Kealkil couple Joyce and Ben Russell, the authors of the bestselling The Polytunnel Book

Joyce is also the current gardening columnist in The Southern Star. ‘Whether you want to extend the season, protect crops from pests or improve yields, this book will help you transform your vegetable plot into somewhere more productive, more attractive and more secure,’ said Joyce.

‘Each build includes step-by-step instructions as well as a list of materials and the tools you’ll need and a relative skills rating. There are expert growing tips and specific crop advice to help you make the most of your harvest,’ she added.

Joyce Russell has thirty years of practical experience of fruit and vegetable growing, designing and making her own garden structures. She also writes each month for Kitchen Garden magazine.

Ben Russell is a photographer, journalist and craftsman, who has had over 6,000 photographs published in books and magazines.
