Description

From perennial vegetables that come back year after year, to easy-to-grow delights, she has selected plants that hold their own in both the garden and on the plate. informative and interesting too, i learnt a lot and the idea of polyculture gardens has my brain buzzing. This book proposes a way of gardening where edible plants are incorporated into gardens, rather than being the sole preserve of allotments and kitchen gardens.

It's lacking the introductory detail to give structure, and some of the chapters feel rather cursory.

In ‘Eat What You Grow’, Alys Fowler shows you how to create a rich, biodiverse garden that feeds not only you, but supports a wide range of pollinators, bees and butterflies, as well as other wildlife.

Eat What You Grow contains fewer lifestyle pictures, more focus on plants and more focus on science, which I'm sure all comes from a decade more of horticulture and more editorial influence with her publisher. She has keen interest in agriculture and food politics and is setting up an urban farm in Birmingham. A gardener, author and journalist, Alys Fowler is a regular contributor to the Guardian and Gardener’s World and is the author of books on gardening, food and nature, including: The Edible Garden, The Thrifty Gardener, Plant Love and Hidden Nature. The whole thing feels rushed and low-budget, without the care, grace, and commitment of The Edible Garden, which is a jewel of a book.We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. She also suggests effective design techniques for ensuring that your garden looks as good as it smells and tastes!

I was especially intrigued by the Edible Water Garden section, as this is entirely unknown territory for me and I’d love to try my hand at growing edible aquatic plants. Alys Fowler trained at the Horticultural Society, the New York Botanical Garden and the Royal Botanic Garden at Kew. She also teaches you simple and effective design tools that will ensure your garden looks striking and wild, brings joy to your world and feeds you day after day. She has an allotment and an urban back garden with two chickens, lots of flowers and plenty of vegetables.By comparison, there are far fewer photos, and the ones that are present are grainy and most frustratingly unlabelled!
