"The Kitchen Gardener" shows how to grow vegetables and fruit in such a way that, far from detracting from the look of your garden, they can actually enhance its appearance. The author shows how the kitchen garden can be designed on ornamental lines to avoid the dull, utilitarian look of a vegetable plot or allotment. By means of detailed layouts the author shows how practical yet pleasing designs for the kitchen garden can be achieved. Other topics covered in the first part of the book - the techniques section - include soil preparation, seed thinning, sowing, transplanting and winter storage. The second part compromises an A-Z crop guides for vegetables, herbs and fruit and the last part compromises appendices on vegetable spacings, sowing times and planting times.
