More and more people now dream of having their own little plot of greenery – what not long ago would have been considered as stuffy and conservative is now the perfect compromise for those who love nature but prefer to live in the city. Increasing numbers of young people are attracted to allotments, where they can realise their dream of an affordable Tiny Home as a weekend house. In this book, the authors show how you can turn your plot into a playground for creativity, using the example of their own allotment, 20 other plots and their owners. Each garden has its own speciality, from growing your own vegetables to building your own garden house. The book is supplemented by tips, recipes and atmospheric photos that invite you to dream of your very own green oasis.
