Description
This book is a new and significantly revised version of the much acclaimed Charleston Kedding: A History of Kitchen Gardening, published in 1996. In that book the story revolved around a fictional kitchen garden, an amalgamation of three real gardens, but here the author has been able to disclose her main source and to tell the true story of the kitchen garden at Pyewell Park in Hampshire and its team of gardeners. The secrets of the garden's hotbed, the backsheds, and the pineapple frame are laid bare in this extraordinary and delightfully written account of the ups and downs of the kitchen garden, with the author's charming ink drawings.

"What is so riveting is the dedication and exhausting manual labor that brought about such miracles as 'the growing of new potatoes and salads at Christmas ... strawberries and kidney beans in April ... nectarines muscats, and figs all summer long ... and seakale, asparagus and rhubarb in November'."Gardens Illustrated
