"The Gourmet Gardener" is about gardening for self-indulgence. It explains how to grow top-quality produce the flavour and freshness of which are impossible to find in the shops. Bob concentrates on the varieties that will give you the most return on your labours - not necessarily in the form of bumper crops, but in the form of superior taste and enjoyment. This book comes with practical advice on growing the tastiest varieties of fruit, nuts, vegetables, herbs, salads and even flowers, as well as advice on how to choose the right plant for your needs and how to improve its performance. A chapter on preserving your produce rounds off the book so that you can eat your garden treats throughout the year.
