Build a Better Vegetable Garden

30 DIY Projects to Improve your Harvest
By Joyce Russell
Photographs by Ben Russell and published by Frances Lincoln

Here are 30 DIY garden projects that anyone can make and enjoy, devised by Joyce and Ben Russell, the authors of the bestselling The Polytunnel Book.

Whether you want to extend the season, protect crops from pests or improve yields, Build a Better Vegetable Garden available from 5 January 2017 (£16.99) will help you transform your vegetable plot into somewhere more productive, more attractive and more secure.

From simple woodwork projects for tunnels and frames to gadgets that deter slugs and carrot root fly, the results are well-designed as well as decorative. 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.

Joyce Russell has thirty years of practical experience of fruit and vegetable growing, while feeding a family from the garden. She writes each month for Kitchen Garden Magazine, as well as regular contributions to other magazines and newspapers. Ben Russell is a skilled craftsman, photographer and journalist who had over 6,000 photographs published in books and magazines.

Their first book, The Polytunnel Book is one of Frances Lincoln’s perennial best-sellers with more than 145 5-star reviews on Amazon.
