About this book

Offering an outline of market gardening around London before 1800, this book considers the role of commercial vegetable production in stimulating kitchen gardening generally, and its influence on the wider agricultural scene. The focus of the book's theme is an account, based on manuscripts from the Grosvenor Estate, of one small area of early market gardening, the Neat House Gardens in Westminster. Contemporary maps and views complement the text.
