an enjoyable book for the kitchen gardener, food lovers and those who love their history. If you've never grown your own this will definitely give you the taste for it

(Garden Answers)

We have a sense of real plants growing in real gardens and even the garden history seems to come alive within this context ... a smashing book

(Journal of the Museum of Garden History)

Format: Paperback
This book is a delight to read. Each page unfolds with a little information about the design and evolution of the kitchen garden. It follows the needs of vegetable growers in the early days through to the large estates who grew vegetables that today we only import from outside the UK.
The dedication to the kitchen garden is always close to the surface as you follow in the tour round the kitchen garden. Tips are placed through out the book so new gems are there to make you stop and think how they could be used again in your smaller garden to produce some of the year round bounty that was a real part of the old kitchen gardeners skills.

I have an interest in restoring a walled garden and was looking for a book to assist in that objective. Then I came across this excellent book. It is not only of great assistance in my endeavour, but is a good and informative read for anyone interested in the history of kitchen gardening. I have no reservations whatsoever in recommending the book to others. Once you start it, you will find it difficult to put down.
