Participating in the grow-your-own movement is important to both reduce your food miles and control what makes it onto your family’s table. If you’ve hesitated to take part because installing and caring for a traditional vegetable garden doesn’t seem to suit your life or your sense of style, Kitchen Garden Revival is here to show you there’s a better, more beautiful way to grow food.

Learn the art of kitchen gardening as you discover: What characteristics all kitchen gardens have in common How to design and install gorgeous kitchen garden beds using metal, wood, or stone Why raised beds mean reduced maintenance What crops are best for your kitchen garden A planting, tending, and harvesting plan developed by a pro Season-by-season growing guides It's time to join the Kitchen Garden Revival and start growing your own delicious, organic food.

Find out how to develop your own herb garden and grow herbs in all situations. Comprehensive information is given on how to plant, propagate, harvest and use herbs in the most interesting ways from planting a herb roof to making herbal oils.

Underpinned by the authority of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and the expertise of Holly Farrell, The Kew Gardener’s Guide to Growing Herbs combines practical elements with inspiration and beauty.
