Best of Bob’s, The collected articles
I currently write freelance at home and abroad and regularly for Amateur Gardening, Kitchen Garden Magazine and BBC Gardeners World Magazine. I have written articles for many other journals and whole series in Living Earth, Organic Life, Gardens Monthly, Gardens Illustrated, Readers Digest and the Eastern Daily Press. Not all of these have as yet agreed but hopefully will soon and then all my articles will be republished here. Many of the following were originally contributed to Kitchen Garden Magazine and so heavily biased towards ‘grow your own’ food. As well as those articles on fruits and vegetables and cultivation under cover there are also essays on such as weeding, mulching, pest control, and sward and lawn maintenance.
Articles have been allocated into different groups depending on their emphasis although very occasionally for convenience one may appear in more than one group- advice- are essays on my best Advice about what I find the most practical of gardening methods fruits- are about growing the many Fruits we can choose for fruit-cage and orchard greenhouse- are on growing in a Greenhouse and polythene covered tunnel informative- are Informative horticultural discursions & arguments with practical advice sundry- are Sundry on storage, processing and preserving, recycling, wildlife and livestock vegetables- concerns the multitude of Vegetable crops including herbs and saladings
