In Creative Vegetable Gardening she shows how the principles of good design can be applied to a kitchen plot and how to use the vibrant textures, colours and forms of vegetables, herbs and fruit to create glorious effects and intriguing patterns without jeopardizing their productivity. Inspirational colour photographs of potagers and kitchen plots capture the essence of the creative approach to vegetable growing. Techniques are described in clear stages and illustrated with full-colour step-by-step artworks, while an A-Z directory includes more than 150 edible plants with key facts on their cultivation, supplemented with ideas on how to grow them to maximum ornamental effect. Beautifully illustrated, intricate plans of five types of potager - formal, informal, small, urban and winter - add to the wealth of inspirational information.

Growing your own food is a hot topic today because of the high cost
of transporting food long distances, the heightened problem of
diseases caused by commercially grown foods, and concerns of the
overuse of chemicals in mass food production. Many people--from
White House executives to inner-city kids--have recently discovered
the benefits of homegrown vegetables and fruits. Community gardens,
and even community canning centers, are increasingly popular and
have turned roof-top gardening into a great and healthy food
source. And on a smaller scale, some plants can even be grown in
containers for the smallest backyard or patio. The possibilities
for growing your own food are endless
