In The Gourmet Gardener, Bob Flowerdew concentrates on his favorite varieties of vegetables, fruits, and flowers—the ones that will give you the most return on your labor in terms of taste and enjoyment. Here is detailed information on growing hundreds of varieties of edible plants—all, of course, organically. Bob provides you with the know-how to enjoy perfectly ripened vegetables and fruits fresh from the garden and an ever-replenishing supply of culinary herbs, salad leaves, edible flowers, and heritage varieties not available in supermarkets. A chapter on preserving your harvest rounds off the book, so that you can freeze, dry, and transform your garden treats into conserves, sorbets, liqueurs, and confections of all kinds.
Bob Flowerdew is Britain’s foremost authority on organic gardening methods; among his many books are The Complete Book of Organic Gardening and Bob Flowerdew’s Organic Bible.
