Here’s what readers around the world have to say about The How to Grow Juicy Tasty Tomatoes Handbook:

l conducted a trial by putting what you have said in your book into practice in my hot house.  One plant I did your way, the other my way as I've always done it. l have also done the same trial with ones in the ground and they're doing even better.  l can't believe the growth rate of the plant - the stem is much thicker, leaves have more colour and it's stronger looking all over. Brett Scott, South Australia

The book turned up yesterday and I have been flat out reading all and sundry. This is the best book by far on this subject and you are both to be congratulated on your  efforts. Brian Smith, Auckland, New Zealand

Your book is by far the very best I have.  I was very interested in diseases and pests (red spider mites) and how to control the problem.  I recommend your book to anyone who grows tomatoes for fun or is very serious. Dayle Pipher, California, USA

Your book is very well organized. I am going to suggest that it be used as a text book in west Africa where we are teaching regenerative agriculture. Jim Riordan, Director www.pppafrica.org, Ghana
