about

From Canada’s #1 garden team, a guide that makes growing your own fruits, vegetables and herbs simple, bountiful and fun

Nothing beats the taste and smell of a tomato freshly picked from your own garden. And there’s a certain pride in knowing that the salad you just served—fresh strawberries and all—was harvested entirely from your backyard. But growing your own fruits, vegetables and herbs can be time-consuming and feel overwhelmingly complicated. Your eagerness to get growing in the spring can be rained out by seemingly endless seedlings and seed packs at your garden centre, all with cryptic planting instructions that leave you with withered plants rather than crunchy carrots. But it doesn’t need to be that way! Frankie Flowers has decades of experience helping thumbs of all colours turn barren patches and empty pots into bountiful harvests—and he can help you do the same.

Food to Grow simplifies every growing decision you’ll need to make. Frankie helps you evaluate your space, decide just how much time you want to invest and then make the smartest choices about which plants will give you the best bang for your buck. He guides you through the entire growing season from prepping and planning, to planting, weeding and harvesting (the best part!), and he shares not just which veggies, fruits and herbs have become Frankie’s Favourites, but also which plants just aren’t worth the effort.

Loaded with gorgeous photography that will have you desperate to get digging, Food to Grow includes a detailed A–Z index of over fifty of Canada’s most popular home crops. Whether you have space for a few pots or a back forty, Frankie Flowers will help you make your dream of home-grown treats a fun and tasty reality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Helpful Tried my hand at gardening with some results, then read this book and figured out what I was doing wrong (gardening isn't as easy as it would seem). My next garden was much more productive and I have not looked back since. There is nothing like just fresh picked anything!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comprehensive, yet easy enough for a Newby to follow I borrowed this from the public library and didn't want to give it back. Very question I had about how to grow my own food is answered here. The beginning gives detailed information and pictures on how to grow most fruits and vegetables. Franky gives key tips on what he recommends planting for beginners, he gives examples of a garden plot through the seasons and at the end he gives cheat sheets on plants, their problems, their planting companions and finishes with the glossary outlining all those gardening words I didn't know. This is just an essential resource to have on hand and worth its weight in gold.
