  • Over the past few years the kitchen garden has enjoyed a remarkable renaissance as people everywhere rediscover the rich, epicurean delights of fresh home-grown produce. Although they may seem like a relatively new phenomenon, kitchen gardens have been popular for centuries. A longstanding tradition in France and England, potagers were an important element of many country homes at the turn of the 20th century.

    Today, the kitchen garden movement continues to gain momentum. Smitten by the idea of beautiful, fragrant garden spaces and an abundance of delectable produce, experienced and amateur gardeners alike are digging up their backyards to plant kitchen gardens.

    The Modern Kitchen Garden shows you how to create one of these delicious spaces for yourself. A visual celebration of this mouth-watering concept, this book presents the history of kitchen gardens, tours some of the most famous kitchen gardens from around the world, and provides sample garden designs and planting schemes, along with other hints, tips and secrets to producing this most delicious type of garden.
