Growing Vegetables South of Australia
Steve Solomon

The latest and fully revised edition of Steve's popular gardening book (6th Edition).

Steve is an experienced grower and seedsman. He moved to Tasmania from Oregon, which has a similar climate for growing vegetables as Tasmania (and colder parts of southern Australia). This book is a comprehensive ‘how to guide’ for growing vegetables and collecting seed from all the veggies we know and love to eat plus many more we had no idea about!! We offer Steve's book for $20.00 - a 25% discount to RRP.

Growing Vegetables South of Australia is a great book for beginners and experienced growers alike.
