Description Description A beautiful, stylish and comprehensive handbook from the Bloom Gardener's Guides series, covering everything you need to know to grow your own food.

Growing your own food is a way to feed your body as well as your 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. It’s packed with professional advice, a selection of the best edible plants to grow and tips on getting the most from your space.

Written by Vicky Chown, a professional forager who teaches urban food growing, it includes a selection of the best edible plants to grow, including:
  • Broad beans
  • Tomatoes
  • Peppers
  • Peas
  • Basil
  • Carrots
  • Aubergines

Discover how best to feed, fertilise and fend off pests, to grow the healthiest and tastiest produce possible. There are also plenty of tips on getting the most from your space – you can do just as well with raised beds, kitchen gardens and crops in pots. It’s perfect for both those with large green gardens as well as city-dwellers with balconies, allotments and courtyards. Learn how to grow a wide variety of edible plants, anywhere you like!
