Growing food is different in the city: life is faster and space is tight. So it is vital to focus on only the most rewarding edible plants. In The Urban Kitchen Gardener, Tom Moggach selects his best city crops, from the familiar chillies and strawberries to the more unusual Japanese shiso and Mexican mouse melons. For each entry, Tom offers practical advice on growing, picking, preserving and cooking your harvest. More than 150 delicious recipe ideas include Coriander and Coconut Chutney, Chilli Corn Bread, Shiso Granita and cocktails such as a Honey and Basil Daiquiri. He also shares expert advice for success with pots and containers, and on windowsills, patios, balconies, roof gardens, back gardens and allotments. Other chapters cover seed saving and green gardening. This is an inspirational guide to making the most of your urban plot, whatever its size.
