Synopsis

The Patch: The Big Allotment Challenge - Grow Make Eat by Unknown TBC

Growing your own fruit and vegetables is surprisingly easy, whatever the size of your garden or allotment. You don't need to be entirely self-sufficient, but there's nothing more satisfying than being able to harvest your own tomatoes, snip a few leaves from a salad bed, or make strawberry jam from home-grown strawberries. And by planting some easy-to-grow flowering plants, it's perfectly possible to have freshly picked cut flowers to decorate your table. Celebrating our burgeoning interest in knowing where our food comes from, Grow is a practical guide to making your garden a haven of productivity. With essential know-how on everything from soil and compost to pruning and pests, the book is aimed at novice gardens. There's an A-Z section on easy-to-grow vegetables, fruit, herbs, and cut flowers; foolproof recipes for transforming your produce into delicious jams, jellies, chutneys, and cordials; and stunningly simple flower arrangements.
