Aimed at both the cook and the gardener, Sarah Raven’s new guide to growing your own vegetables makes the most of labor-saving, time-efficient ideas. This is not a book about becoming self-sufficient, but about concentrating time and energy on varieties that are really worth growing. She demonstrates how to plan and plant your plot, recommends the best vegetables to grow and eat, and offers clear instructions on cultivating them with minimum effort and maximum reward. Ultimately, however, The Great Vegetable Plot is about pleasure—from the enjoyment of planting and growing your own produce to the priceless reward of having fresh vegetables just outside your door.
Sarah Raven is one of the best and most original of the new generation of garden writers; among her previous books is The Cutting Garden.
