Synopsis

A History of Kitchen Gardening by Susan Campbell

In the original book the story revolved around a fictional kitchen garden, but in this new edition, the author has been able to disclose her main source and her book is all the better for being able to turn on the true story of the kitchen garden at Pyewell Park in Hampshire and its team of gardeners. The amazing secrets of the hotbed, the backsheds and the pineapple frame are laid bare in this extraordinary and delightfully written account of the ups and downs of the kitchen garden.

About the Author

Susan Campbell is an author and illustrator who has pioneered research into the history of the kitchen garden. She lectures widely on the subject and advises English Heritage and the National Trust as well as private owners on their restoration.
