Grow with Joe

Joe Maiden - grower, horticulturist, seed merchant, nurseryman - has had a huge following on local radio for an amazing forty years. In part because of his instantly recognisable voice, he also has a remarkable ability to answer almost every question put his way. The humour, humility and practical knowledge displayed in these answers tell you at once that he has done the job hundreds of times.

Now in response to countless requests, Joe has at last set down this knowledge in a much-needed book that puts gardening firmly in a Yorkshire context. It looks at a wide variety of subjects ranging from vegetables to bedding plants and from fruit to rock gardens. Each section has its own growing guide and a series of question and answers, as well as humorous tales that embrace a giant pumpkin, onions in bow ties and a very special 'tattie bash'! Featuring many specially taken photographs, this is truly a gardening book with a difference.
