Description

She has an allotment and an urban back garden with two chickens, lots of flowers and plenty of vegetables.

I gave 4 stars rather than 3 because I felt Eat What You Grow had a great deal of poise, especially compared to The Edible Garden, which hinged on a very lifestyle driven TV companion, where many encountered Fowler's distinctive style for the first time.Through anecdotal advice, you will learn how to raise and nurture your plants; from trees and shrubs to bulbs and climbers, Fowler covers everything from where to plant them, how to feed the soil and when they should be harvested. Her inspiration for urban gardening comes from her time volunteering in a community garden on the Lower East side in Manhattan, New York City. By comparison, there are far fewer photos, and the ones that are present are grainy and most frustratingly unlabelled! Her approach, which she describes as a polyculture, hinges upon ‘a good backbone of perennial edibles’ that can be relied on year after year to produce a healthy harvest, alongside a complement of annual plants that you can sow and grow to suit your tastes as well as your capacity. Among the many possibilities, there are familiar faces such as fig trees, rocket and beetroot, as well as less commonplace plants and varieties such as Korean celery (Dystaenia takesimana) and mashua (Tropaeolum tuberosum), a flowering plant from the Andes with edible tubers.

All of the plants that Fowler has incorporated into this book have been selected so that they hold their own not just in a garden but on the plate.I’ve enjoyed learning about some more unusual edible plants that I wouldn’t have thought of to grow. She also suggests effective design techniques for ensuring that your garden looks as good as it smells and tastes! We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. There are lots of interesting new edibles throughout the book, which may or may not be shown in the photos, but you can't tell, so you haven't a clue what they look like. I was especially intrigued by the Edible Water Garden section, as this is entirely unknown territory for me and I’d love to try my hand at growing edible aquatic plants.
