Sally has written more than 250 books over the last 25 years, ranging from first readers for young children to A level texts and adult non fiction.

Sally’s latest book, The Healthy Vegetable Garden, is published by Chelsea Green in September 2021. Sally looks at how you can create a resilient, biodiverse growing space with a soil that’s full of life, all without the need for fertilisers, pesticides or weedkillers.

There’s plenty of information, from  choosing the right plants to attract pollinators and natural predators, regenerating your soil through no-dig practices and composting, building up your soil life, and boosting biodiversity through the use of productive plant combinations, polyculture and rewilding.
