Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

A heartwarming, delightful memoir from the man who has been adopted by The Jeremy Vine Show on BBC Radio 2 Terry Walton has kept an allotment for over 50 years in the Rhondda valley. South Wales. He started, age 4, helping on his dad's plot on the side of the mountain, when he was sent to cut bracken and collect sheep manure by the bucketful to feed the rows of vegetables. By the time he was eleven, he had his own plot - the youngest ever to do so. From the first time he opened his eyes in a nursing home at the other side of the allotment fence to his current role as media personality on radio, TV and in the press, Terry's tale unfolds in fascinating detail.
