About the Authors
Alan Buckingham is a freelance writer. He has over 20 years experience in illustrated publishing, both as an editor and as an author, and has worked on countless information books, interactive CD-ROMS and websites. In recent years he has written chiefly about gardening and photography, his two main interests. Grow Vegetables is illustrated with many of his own photographs. Every summer he grows far more fruit and vegetables than he and his family could ever hope to eat, and should he ever be given the opportunity to have his time again, he would happily swap a career in publishing for one as a head gardener. His new book, Grow Fruit, is also available - click here for more information.
