About this deal

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Split into three main sections, the book takes a holistic approach by building from the basics, which are edible perennials in a variety of sizes and growth habits, up to fillers that self-seed, through to toppings, which are annual plants that will thrive in this mixed system. She has an allotment and an urban back garden with two chickens, lots of flowers and plenty of vegetables. And tells you how to raise these plants, guiding you through the process of feeding your soil, saving seed and taking cuttings to increase your supplies.

She has contributed to G ardens Illustrated, The Observer Food Monthly, The National Geographic and Country Living . By comparison, there are far fewer photos, and the ones that are present are grainy and most frustratingly unlabelled!Fowler suggests that it is far less time consuming to garden alongside nature rather than being a chore that includes constant weeding and back-breaking digging. In Eat What You Grow, Alys 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.

And as I now embark on my second year in a new garden, Eat What You Grow has provided a source of inspiration to consider more ambitious plans for each of the seasons. I bought this book alongside “The Edible Garden”, (which i had been watching on the television), thinking it would be a food addition to my gardening library.A thoroughly rich and engaging practical guide to creating a wildlife-friendly edible garden that is as beautiful as it is utterly delicious. 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. 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. However, the book does work as a concept with its own focus and I think if you haven't read Fowler's earlier work then this is actually the best place to start.
