about

Peek behind the garden door at some of Britain's grandest estates to discover the traditional crafts of growing, cooking, and self-sufficiency from past masters
 
From "growing your own" and cooking with herbs to harvesting honey and keeping chickens, Britain's great estates and country house gardens offer a wealth of inspiration to the modern gardener. From traditional walled kitchen gardens and their—sometimes surprising—fruit and vegetables to keeping bees, chickens, or even livestock, traditional methods and crafts have been in use since medieval times and have much to teach anyone who wishes to make their own outdoor space a model of self-sufficiency. Covering fruit and vegetables, herbs, orchards, beekeeping, fish ponds and lakes, dovecotes and poultry, dairy and the farmyard, the deer park and game, and hops and vineyards, there is something in this book for everyone, whether one has acres of land, an allotment, or even simply a windowsill for growing herbs. Includes dual measures.
Helene Gammack has worked as sole gardener in a renowned plantsmans garden for 10 years and as a research assistant for the National Trust for the last two years.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Book! The author Helene Gammack has gone through all aspects of a traditional kitchen garden from the past. Well written, beautiful photographs and provides good information for one wishing to have their own kitchen garden. One caveat...this is a British book so not everything would apply here in Canada.
