'A vegetable plot is a beautiful thing to make, with the extra bonus of producing the best possible things to eat. If you get it right, the whole place can become your market, your haven and your playground.'
So says Sarah Raven in The Great Vegetable Plot, an indispensable practical guide to creating the perfect vegetable garden with the minimum of fuss and effort. By eschewing the timely and unnecessary steps that can frustrate even the most patient gardener, Sarah's principles of speed and simplicity can help you to craft a plot that perfectly suits your needs - and lets you enjoy fresh, home-grown crops all year round.
Sarah's straight-forward approach focuses on easy and rewarding vegetables that don't require huge amounts of time or space, meaning you don't need to devout hours to slavishly tending your plot. Beautifully illustrated with over 250 photographs from award-winning photographer Jonathan Buckley, this inspiring guide is ultimately all about pleasure - from the enjoyment you'll get from planting and growing your own produce to the priceless reward of having a wealth of fresh vegetables just outside your door.
