Ever wanted to grow your own but don't have the time, the space, or even know where to start? Alice Holden, one of Britain's most pioneering female growers, has spent her life outdoors working on small and large scales - from kitchen gardens to commercial farms. In this, her first book, she'll help optimise the space and time available to you - even if it's a window box and 10 minutes a week. Find out: the basic tools you need to get started; how to make a raised bed and why you need one; a recipe for compost; and how to keep pests at bay. With delicious recipes from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and others that Alice has worked with, Do Grow will inspire you to change your view - and plant an edible garden.
