Editorial Reviews

Booknews
English gardening expert Anna Pavord guides the reader in creating a productive and beautiful kitchen garden, covering topics from design and structure to cultivar selection. As with most British fruit and vegetable guides, many suggested plants are not available in the US, but the sage advice and inspiring photographs more than compensate.

I'm just getting started on my garden, and I found SO much information here! Time to plant, how deep, which ones to plant, and SO much more! I'm going to buy this one! I usually go my public library for references. This one earned my loyalty! *G*

This book beautifully incorporates vegetables and flowers in the same garden. Many different styles of gardens are featured ( Formal, cottage, traditional kitchen ....)with beautiful color pictures and color sketches that show you how to recreate the gardens in your own yard. The second half of book tells you how to cultivate vegetables, fruits and herbs and includes recipes to utilize your bounty. Beautiful and practical book.
