teagasc Logo
A new revised edition of the popular Teagasc publication, A Guide to Vegetable Growing has just been published. The latest publication has been updated and expanded to include new topics like plant raising and watering of vegetable crops. The difficulties and problems for plants encountered during the recent cold weather experienced in 2010 are also covered. The extreme cold conditions affected plant growth in many cases.


Teagasc horticultural specialist Stephen Alexander said; ”If ever a cloud had a silver lining, then the knock-on effect of the recession in getting people back to growing their own vegetables, has to be welcomed. This book is full of tips and advice in how to grow the A-Z of vegetables. The ever present problems of pests and diseases are addressed along with suggested solutions. The emphasis is on cultural and physical controls rather than relying on pesticides. There are also handy ready-reference tables laying out the season of production, plant spacing, sowing, planting and harvesting dates for all the crops mentioned in the main text.”
