Focusing on plants destined for the dinner plate, The Kitchen Garden is an illustrated guide to growing edible plants from sowing to harvesting. Learn when to sow, what to grow, and how to make your delicious harvest intoa meal.

Each profile is illustrated and has an easy-to-comprehend table detailing the most important information: when to sow and harvest; growing time; space needed between plants; optimal soil pH; whether the plant will tolerate pots and frost; and each plant’s companions and dislikes.
A planting chart summarizing the most useful information from the plant profiles is also included, along with guidance on the different climate zones and how best to start your kitchen garden.
