Book Cover Edible Garden by Vicky Chown

Growing your own food is a way to feed body and soul. Approached in a sustainable way, it can also nurture the land and provide for wildlife. You don’t need an enormous garden, an allotment or a fancy greenhouse to do it. Edible Garden is as much about planting food in your garden borders and sowing crops in pots, as it is about raised beds or kitchen gardens.

Packed with professional advice, a selection of the best edible plants to grow and tips on getting the most from the space. This is a book perfect for both those with large green gardens as well as city-dwellers with balconies, allotments and courtyards.
