'An endless selection of delicious produce you can plant, grow and then cook with.' Raymond Blanc OBE


Now you can create your own delicious edible garden at home!

More and more people are being inspired to grow a little of what they eat at home. But while starting your own kitchen garden may seem like a daunting task at first, Grow & Cook makes it easy.

Award-winning author and gardener, Mark Diacono, has distilled years of knowledge into this pocket-sized book. Whether you are new to gardening and only have a small window box or you are much more experienced with the space to experiment, this user-friendly handbook will inspire and help you. Mark is here to show you that there are plenty of options for everyone and lots of exciting new varieties to discover.

Each variety in the book includes a wealth of information on when to sow, growing tips, potential problems, harvesting and plenty more. There are hundreds of varieties to pick from that can be grown and then used in your kitchen.

Mark separates the growing guides into three groups:

* Vegetables
* Fruit & Nuts
* Herbs & Spices

Whatever you choose to grow should suit your lifestyle. You might prefer something tough and sturdy that doesn't need too much love or time commitment, or you might get pleasure from the steady graft of looking after your veg patch. Whichever your circumstances, your kitchen garden should bring you joy both in the growing process and then in the kitchen.

Grow & Cook is the essential pocket guide for modern gardeners.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Diacono wants new gardeners to learn to think for themselves and build their own strategies from the many modes of food production. * Irish Sunday Times *
Visionary and useful, this is altogether an inspiring book. * The Lady *
Rush out and buy it. It is really very good. * Monty Don, @TheMontyDon *
Mark's writing style is conversational and engaging, he's deeply knowledgeable, yet he's low-key and modest. He's 'can-do' and accessible without ever being patronising. * English Garden *
The New Kitchen Garden doesn't begin with the usual plan of an allotment quartered into beds awaiting their rotation, it starts by asking what you need. * Sunday Mirror - Book of the Week *
