The Kew Guide to Growing Vegetables looks at some of the most common vegetables grown, and also some more unusual edibles. It gives easy to follow instructions on how to be a successful vegetable gardener, plus 12 exciting projects to try throughout the year. From sowing, to planting young plants, to hardening off and harvesting, Helena Dove, Kew's Kitchen Gardener shows what can be achieved with a few packets of seed and some fertile ground.
