Orchard Growing and cooking fruit from your garden

Author: Jane McMorland Hunter, Chris Kelly Format: Hardback Release Date: 06/06/2019

Orchards are one of the oldest and most beautiful types of garden. Forget large commercial orchards and, instead, think of sitting in the gentle shade of a graceful tree and eating a perfect piece of fruit. You do not need a lot of space to achieve this; you don't even need much skill. Just a desire for really good fruit and a love of beautiful gardens and trees. Whether you fantasise about having a whole orchard, just a cherry tree in a pot, or even the perfect apple pie, Orchard provides all the information, inspiration and encouragement you need. From versatile apples, popular pears, beautiful cherries and cultivated plums to rare quinces, ancient medlars and wise mulberries, Orchard caters for the fruit farmer, amateur cook and natural historian. As well as sharing essential cultivation advice and delicious recipes, this comprehensive guide also explores the rich traditions of fruit growing alongside the charming histories of your favourite fruits. Whether you have a tiny balcony or a huge field, it's never been easier to grow and cook orchard fruits.

Ode to London Collection of Poems to celebrate the city

Ode to London Collection of Poems to celebrate the city

Author: Jane McMorland Hunter Format: Hardback Release Date: 22/05/2012

'Earth hath not anything to show more fair' said Wordsworth of London in 1802, and hundreds of years on the same can be still be said of Britain's largest metropolis. Ode to London is a wonderful anthology of poetry celebrating England's capital and life as a Londoner. Verses from our best-loved authors, such as William Wordsworth, William Blake and John Betjeman among others, are accompanied by beautiful illustrations - often taken from iconic tube posters - of London's famous sights, green parks and Londoners in their daily lives. Epic poems celebrating London's vast and majestic presence sit alongside Cockney ditties about pie, mash and jellied eels in this new collection. Celebrating every aspect of 'the big smoke' - from the Houses of Parliament and the Blitz spirit, through to red double-decker buses and infamous rainy English summers - this is the perfect gift for any Londoner or visitor to the city. Other successful titles in the series include Ode to the Countryside (9781905400959) and Ode to the Sea (9781907892141).
