Product Description

Review

An excellent, eminently practical guide based on the author's first-hand experience of sowing, growing and harvesting food in his own back garden. --Fionnuala Fallon, The Irish Times

All the extras mean that Trevor's Kitchen Garden is a book you can sit down and read as well as a manual that you can refer to. It's an excellent guide for a kitchen gardener's bookshelf. -- --Elizabeth O'Shea, Tipp Tatler Magazine

He shares nuggets of information on all aspects of gardening and food growing, from sowing and harvesting to pruning and tidying, and the book is steeped in the history and heritage attached to our natural world. This book should be an essential guide to anyone, in no matter how small a space, interested in growing their own food and becoming more self-sufficient. --Ireland's Own, 11 May 2012

This is real gardening and not the stuff of trendy land-scape gardeners beloved by TV producers. I found myself absorbed by the content and read it from cover to cover, for it is the ultimate practical guide to feeding oneself economically with home-grown produce. --Joe Barry, Irish Independent, 8 May 2012

Lively text and lots of useful tips --Mary Davies, The Irish Garden, May 2012

Format: Paperback
I own about 8 GIY(Grow It Yourself) books, 4 pairs of wellies, and still can't it together.

I should probably add that this number does not include all those preachy cookbooks instructing me to grow my own provisions. So really, I have a little library of books to help me in the garden. What was I thinking of buying another?!

Trevor's Kitchen Garden is, in truth, awesome. Everything from growing potatoes in a bag (diagrams included) to weed identification. If you are new to GIY and don't know where to begin, then just open up the book at the week you are in. Each chapter follows the months of the year, and are further divided up into weeks.

Really useful, informative, easy to follow and creative. I love it. You only need one book, and this is it.

Like many others, I have started to grow some herbs/vegetables (on a small scale, with limited success so far). The main appeal with Trevor Sargent's book is that he too is working within the confines of an urban garden. I find all the background information fascinating as well. This is my new garden bible.
