James Wong's Homegrown Revolution

James Wong's Homegrown Revolution

A revolution in the garden – a completely new range of fruit and vegetables to grow and eat.

Whether it’s a window box of homegrown saffron, your very own kiwi vine or a mini green tea plantation on your patio, TV botanist and best-selling author James Wong proves that ‘growing your own’ can be so much more exciting than spuds, sprouts and swede.

Breaking free from the ‘dig for victory’ time warp of allotment staples, James reveals the vast array of 21st century crops that will flourish outdoors, even in our blustery North Atlantic climate – no greenhouse necessary. From goji berries to food-mile free sweet potatoes, James’ revolutionary approach to edible gardening will show you how to grow, cook and eat all manner of superfood crops that are just as easy (if not easier) and far more exciting to grow than the ‘ration book’ favourites.

Inspiring, fun and full of plant know-how, this book is set to revolutionise the whole concept of ‘growing your own’ for newbie growers to seasoned allotment veterans alike. You’ll never look at your garden the same way again!

Reviews

you'll be inspired by his alternatives to broccoli and kale
Jane Shilling, DAILY MAIL
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.
Constance Craig Smith, DAILY MAIL (WEEKEND)
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.
SIMPLE THINGS
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.
CAROLINE DONALD, SUNDAY TIMES
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.
Francine Raymond, GARDENS ILLUSTRATED
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.
THE ORGANIC WAY
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.
