The Authors: Mark Gatter began growing vegetables in the early eighties. He’s a firm advocate of an organic, raised-bed approach and uses a combination of a polytunnel and outside beds at his home in north Wales, to grow vegetables all the year round. Andy McKee began gardening with his father at the age of five. He lives with his wife and family in rural Dorset where they are entirely self-sufficient in organic vegetables using their polytunnel and a modest outdoor plot.
