Edible Garden

Feed the ground, sow seed, care for the crops, gather, pick and feast


This beautiful and comprehensive handbook covers everything you need to know to grow edible crops in your garden.

Growing your own food is a way to feed your body as well as your soul. Approached in a sustainable way, it can also nurture the land and provide for wildlife.

You don’t need an enormous garden, an allotment or a fancy greenhouse to do it. Edible Garden is as much about planting food in your garden borders and sowing crops in pots, as it is about raised beds or and kitchen gardens.

Edible Garden is packed with pro advice, a selection of the best edible plants to grow and tips on getting the most from your space.

Author Vicky Chown is a gardener and forager. She is head of urban growing at OmVed, a garden and ecological education space in London. She teaches food growing and permaculture and co-runs the Seed Saving Network, a community saving biodiverse seed across the UK. Vicky also practises as a medical herbalist and is co-founder of the Handmade Apothecary, a project sharing traditional knowledge and uses of herbs.
