Ever wanted to grow your own vegetables but don’t have the time, the space, or even know where to start? Alice Holden, one of Britain’s most pioneering female growers, has spent her life outdoors working on small and large scales – from kitchen gardens, such as Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage, to commercial farms. In this, her first book, she’ll help optimise the space and time available to you – even if it’s a window box and 10 minutes a week. In addition to instructions on how to grow 10 simple vegetables, accompanied by colour photographs and line drawings, the book also contains recipes from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.
Find out: - The basic tools you need to get started growing your own vegetables- How to make a raised bed and why you need one- A recipe for compost- How to increase your chances of success
