Publisher's Description

How to cultivate a lot of home-grown vegetables from the smallest possible space. When space is at a premium, growing decent food to eat might seem an impossible task. Patio Produce is about just that; growing delicious, wholesome fruit and vegetables in the smallest spaces. It shows you how to make the most of pots and planters; how to create decorative but edible displays; how to plan for a reasonable yield; and how never to run out of at least something special to eat. If you have a balcony on a high rise, a roof garden or a patio, you can immeasurably enhance your quality of life, maintain your health and enjoy some amazing meals from the freshest and richest ingredients. Patio Produce goes from plant pot to plate. Think quality, freshness, flavour and put these thoughts into your ever greening fingers. Inside there are detailed step-by-step instructions how to grow on the patio - not just for novelty's sake, but for flavour and an enhanced eating experience. You might not have all the space in the world, but you can enjoy all the flavour in the world. To know you have grown, nurtured, harvested and cooked to perfection your own vegetables and fruit, will make this book into an old friend.

Author Bio

Author Paul Peacock has written over 30 books on gardening, self sufficiency, curing meats, making cheese and sausages, keeping bees and poultry. He writes for the Daily Mirror as Mr Digwell, the cartoon gardener - the longest running gardening newspaper column in the world.

He has been a regular contributor to BBC Radio 4's Gardener's Question Time and appeared on numerous television shows. He runs the www.citycottage.co.uk website dedicated to the simple idea that the best food you will ever eat is cooked at home.

Pauls passion for fish was kickstarted by a plate of fritto misto de mare, which remains his favourite dish (recipe in the book) and queenies cooked in cream topped with cheddar( recipe also in this book)!
He believes the best fish in the world come from UK waters, that's why everyone buys it, far and wide, and, as Paul points out in this book, it is a tragedy the British hardly eat any of it.

This book is hopefully a tiny step on the way to changing that.
