Mr Middleton was the Alan Titchmarsh of the last war, when the nation hung on his every word during his BBC radio broadcasts. He was the first media gardener, exhorting us to Dig for Victory and Dig for Dear Life and (as in this book) advising us that ‘An allotment is like the army. The first month is the worst: after that you begin to enjoy it.’ In 2008 Aurum re-published his wartime book Digging for Victory. Now here is a second classic reproduced in facsimile, first published in 1945 – a guide to what to plant, and how and when.
