The Kitchen Garden (Garden Project Workbooks)
“The Scented Garden” and The Kitchen Garden, by renowned gardening author Richard Bird, are the next two titles to join the successful Garden Project Workbook series published by Stewart, Tabori & Chang.
One of the most satisfying experiences in gardening is growing-and eating-one’s own fruits and vegetables. Fortunately for today’s small-space gardeners, fruit and vegetable plants have shed their utilitarian image and are now an integral part of many an ornamental garden. The Kitchen Garden shows, in twenty step-by-step projects, how to create a variety of delightfully decorative and productive plots.
The Kitchen Garden is divided into four main sections containing innovative ways of using fruit, vegetables and herbs in garden plots, in containers, as climbers, and as an integral part in beds and borders. Each section presents a number of unique solutions for adding fruits and vegetables to gardens of any size or style. Among the projects included are : planting a salad bed, designing a knot garden for herb plants, building a rooftop kitchen garden, adding vegetables vines, and planting fruit among the flowers.
The Kitchen Garden shows that incorporating these edible delights into an ornamental garden can be fun and wonderfully decorative, as well as productive. With the practical advice and clearly illustrated step-by-step instructions, all gardeners can now enjoy the fruits-and vegetables-of their labors.
This unique series consists of hardback spiral-bound books that are dedicated to providing inspirational ideas on a range of gardening topics and each book provides a comprehensive, practical guide for all levels of gardening experience.
