Full Description
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 is continuously gaining 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 modern kitchen gardens. The Modern Kitchen Garden shows you how to create such a garden, and eat it, too. A visual celebration of this mouth-watering concept, the book presents the history of kitchen gardens, sample garden designs and planting schemes, and a guide to growing according to the seasons, among countless other secrets to producing this most delicious type of garden.
