The Allotment Book: Seasonal Planner & Cookbook by Andi ClevelyThis series of monthly guides will help you know what to do now on your plot and what should have been done and is to do. The two things that control what you should be doing now in the garden are the weather and your location. The map to the right gives some idea of how things vary across the UK. South of us can be a week ahead and the warmest south-east of the country two weeks ahead. Wherever you live, the weather is the dominant factor. Some years spring comes early and others you wonder if winter will ever end.

Allotment Seasonal Planner & Cookbook
November is the month when the hard frosts and heavy rain usually arrive so it's important to grab whatever time you can on the plot in case you don't get another chance. There's little to sow and plant but still a fair amount to harvest and store away to eat through winter. This new book contains 30 practical projects - from fruit cage to boot cleaner - that will keep anyone with a saw, drill and a few bits of timber happy for weeks? The Creative Kitchen offers a breath of fresh air to anyone beginning on a journey to a more sustainable lifestyle.
