Thrifty and resourceful ways to take the good life and refashion it to fit into city life, by throwing out the old rules of gardening and combining the beautiful with the edible
Abandoning the limitations of traditional gardening methods, Alys Foster describes how she has created a beautifully productive garden where tomatoes sit happily next to roses, carrots are woven between the lavenders, potatoes grow in pots on the patio, and all of it is produced in a way that mimics natural systems, producing delicious homegrown food for her table. She also shares her favorite recipes for the hearty dishes, pickles, and jams she makes to use up her bountiful harvest, proving that no one need go hungry on her grow-your-own regime. Good for the pocket, good for the environment, and hugely rewarding for the soul, this guide urges urbanites everywhere to chuck out the old gardening rules and create their own haven that’s as good to look at as it is to eat.
