STAFF PICK: If you grow your own fruit and veg then this will be an excellent addition to your library. Full lot useful hints and tips, and very much for the gardening realist! [Jane Rowland, Operations Director]
This beautiful full-colour book, resplendent with illustrations and photos, is written in three parts. First, Rosemary discusses what fruit you can grow and how to use it. The second covers her greenhouse and the techniques and eco-friendly methods she uses to grow her produce – she also takes a look at vegetables in this section. In the third and final part of the book, Rosemary focuses on the changing priorities we face throughout our lifetimes. Having grown produce for 50 years, in the same garden, Rosemary examines how our life – and demands – changes the time we have to spend in the garden, from having young children and less time, to gardening in older age, with more time but less mobility. This section encourages and guides readers to garden despite their personal situation.
