Believing that a vegetable garden, whatever its size, can be as beautiful as a conventional garden of flowers and shrubs, Joy Larkcom proves that the principles of good design can be applied to a kitchen plot. Emphasizing the vibrant textures and colors of vegetables, herbs, and fruit, Larkcom explains how to create intriguing patterns without jeopardizing their productivity. Offering ideas on creating five different types of kitchen garden—formal, informal, small, urban and winter—the book also features more than 100 color photos of some inspiring and impressive gardens. Also included here, an A-Z directory of 150 edible plants contains key facts on their cultivation, supplemented with ideas on how to grow them to maximum ornamental effect.
