About this book

What could be tastier than fruit, picked straight from your back garden? Growing your own fruit can be a rewarding pastime and you don't need a big garden or allotment to cultivate your favourite fruit, as they can grow well in containers and even hanging baskets. This beautiful and practical guide celebrates the produce of orchards, allotments and gardens, from rhubarb, gooseberries and strawberries to peaches, damsons and plums. Each fruit entry details its history and folklore with essential gardening notes and tips for successful growing. This is followed by a full selection of delicious recipes with a variety of sweet and savoury dishes to suit all tastebuds: rhubarb and ginger chutney, rabbit with damsons and plum and hazelnut cake. Illustrated throughout with beautiful illustrations, you will find all you need for a fruitful, healthy garden all year round.
