Nineteen-year-old Huw Richards began growing food on his family's smallholding in mid-west Wales at the age of three. He uploaded his first gardening video to YouTube when he was twelve, and has since surpassed 20 million views online. His channel HuwsNursery teaches people all over the world about how to grow their own food organically. Educating and inspiring the next generation of gardeners is of huge importance to Huw. In 2017 he was the gardening presenter for ITV Wales Coast and Country and regularly features on Welsh TV and radio. He's currently working on his first book, due for publication by Dorling Kindersley in June 2019. When he's not in the vegetable garden, you can find Huw on the sports field or travelling. 


Publication DetailsNotes

Dorling Kindersley

Month by month, discover what you need to do and how to do it. Try it in your allotment, a small garden, or even on a roof terrace.

Everything is explained in clear, photographed steps: building your bed, growing from seed, planting, feeding, and harvesting. Huw shows how to guarantee early success by starting off young plants on a windowsill. He suggests what to grow in each part of the bed, and provides alternative vegetables to swap in or out depending on what you like eating. No-dig gardening methods remove most of the back-breaking work, too.

VEG IN ONE BED goes beyond the inspiring demonstrations on his YouTube channel Huw's Nursery. In this book he organises all his ideas and suggestions into a blueprint for growing your own vegetables month by month. Little growing experience? Only a small space? No matter - with VEG IN ONE BED, you can still eat food you have grown all through the year.
