Publisher's Summary

Not a book about gardening, it's a book about people who garden...people like old Mrs Fuller who remembers watching First World War Italian POWs demolish the local manor house; General Safi former Protector of the King of Afghanistan who fled his native country after being imprisoned and tortured; and Michael Wale, who's had an allotment since 1980 and has an obsession with compost. As Wale embarks on a narrative journey through the seasons in his allotment world, he engages with his fellow gardeners and tells their stories. View from a Shed is for everyone in the big city who has dreamt about country life - it doesn't have to be just a dream.

    "Extremely disappointing...."

    After reading the synopsis I was expecting a little more from this book. Hopefully we would hear of the 'quirkiness' of the allotment owners as well as snippets, humerous or otherwise, about the characters - people watching can be very entertaining.
    Mostly we heard about the politics of owning an allotment and the pettiness of some of the councillors or decision makers, as well as when would be the best time to plant such and such a vegetable and should it be planted in manure or not !!!
    Generally a disappointing book.
