This year's most original gardening book is James Wong's Homegrown Revolution in which he urges us to try growing unusual vegetables such as asparagus peas and dahlia yams.
James Wong shows how simple it is to grow unusual greens, veg and herbs at home.. And, most importantly, a great set of recipes is included too.
crops.. such as Vietnamese fish mint and the New Zealand yam are still hardly household names. Thanks to Wong, and his mission to widen our repertoire, this may all soon change.
a kitchen garden packed full of James Wong's recommendations would make a refreshing change.. packed full of encouragement to take a new look at not just the contents of our vegetable plot but at our gardens as a whole.
I will certainly be trying a few new ideas next year.. The individual crop entries in the book are full of useful advice on growing the many and varied edible plants.
James Wong includes recipes as well as advice on how to grow these plants, making Homegrown Revolution a must for anyone who is tired of wartime rations and wants to try a 21st century garden.
