Bestselling gardening writer Anna Pavord tells us all we need to know about growing vegetables, herbs and fruit. She describes how food crops can make a decorative as well as delicious addition to the garden, explains simply and clearly how to assess site and soil and devise a planting plan, and offers ideas for flexible contemporary variations on the traditional kitchen garden. She includes 12 plans for vegetable gardens ranging from a tiny roof garden through a Mediterranean courtyard and a vegetable patchwork to an exuberant potager. She goes on to give detailed information on growing a wide range of vegetables, herbs and fruits, recommending the best varieties for looks as well as taste, and providing recipes so that you can make the most of your harvest.

Reviews

Good for the shed - with fewer photographs but the same basic, delightfully written information. It contains everything you need to know about growing fruit and vegetables, with detailed cultivation instructions, as well as design ideas for kitchen gardens and vegetable plots. Homes & Gardens A book for the thoughtful kitch gardener, who has time to read around their subject and who requires more than the bare minimum of cultivation facts. Professional Gardener Enthusiasm, coupled with a meticulous examination of the when, the where and what of self-grow, make the subject of DIY horticulture both comprehensible and delightful to read, even for the least green-fingered of souls. Eastern Daily Press Lots of information for the beginner. Let's Talk Seems at time to be a part poetry volume, so passionate are Anna Pavord's reveries over her subject matter. Newcastle Upon Tyne Evening Chronicle
