What could be tastier than vegetables, picked straight from your back garden? Growing your own vegetables can be a rewarding pastime and you don't need a big garden or allotment to cultivate your favourite veg, as they can grow well in containers and smaller urban spaces. This beautiful and practical guide celebrates the produce of allotments and gardens, from carrots and courgettes to artichokes and aubergines. Each vegetable entry details its history and folklore with essential gardening notes and tips for successful growing. This is followed by a selection of delicious recipes with a variety of dishes to suit all tastebuds, from hearty salads and mouthwatering soups to more substantial mains like roasted squash with red onion and stuffed courgette flowers. Illustrated throughout with beautiful and practical illustrations, you will find all you need for a healthy garden bursting with fresh produce all year round.
