You don't need a country garden or an allotment to grow good fruit and veg...This book celebrates the fact that anyone can 'grow your own' and that through veg growing you can meet your neighbours and grow your own community too.
A few years ago, Naomi Schillinger got together with her neighbours to start a community gardening scheme.
Today, they live in a street in which no less than 100 residents have turned their front gardens over to growing their own fruit and veg: lettuces, leeks and beetroot in raised beds, teepees billowing with sweet peas and runner beans, rhubarb by the door...Whether you live in a rented flat with a window box, a house with a front garden - if you have access to a bit of pavement or decide to reclaim some unloved or forgotten corner - there will be ideas in this book which will encourage you to have a go at growing your own fruit and veg (and flowers) throughout the year; and, in so doing, create your own mini Eden.
