THE SALAD GARDEN Joy Larkcom.
A fully revised and updated edition of the ‘book of the century’.
When ‘The Salad Garden’ was first published in 1984, it was heralded as a game changer by gardeners, chefs and the professional growers who supplied restaurants and supermarkets. This fully revised and updated edition recognises the growing numbers of gardeners with small spaces, and emphasises techniques and varieties suited to patios, window boxes, containers, and small raised beds.
Updates include the latest, improved varieties of salad plants and exciting new types of sorrel, salad rocket, cabbage and kales. It also features the latest developments in polytunnels, frames, cloches, low tunnels, and organic methods of pest control. The recipes included have been updated with a more contemporary feel.
Paperback. 288 pages.
To quote gardener Alys Fowler from the book’s cover: “The minute I finished reading this book I went outside and sowed some lettuce” - we’re sure you’ll be inspired too!
