Synopsis

Selected as a Book of the Year 2017 in You Magazine



'A lavish monthly guide to getting the most from your garden' Daily Mail



A punnet of plums from your tree, a handful of gooseberries; home-grown nuts and herbs, and a few freshly laid eggs from your hens - all enjoyed in your own small plot. What could be more satisfying?



The Garden Farmer is an evocative journal and monthly guide to getting the most out of your garden throughout the year. Whether you are a keen gardener looking for inspiration, or just starting out and wanting to rediscover and reclaim your patch of earth, Sunday Telegraph garden-columnist Francine Raymond lays the groundwork for a bountiful year of garden farming.



Maybe you would like to get outside more, grow a few essential vegetables, some fruit trees or bushes for preserving, and create a scented kitchen garden to provide for you year round. Or perhaps you will raise a small flock of ducks or geese, or even a couple of pigs? Could this be the year you decorate your home with nature's adornments, encourage wildlife back to pollinate your trees and plants, and spend celebratory hours in a haven of your own creation?



Each chapter of The Garden Farmer offers insight into the topics and projects you might be contemplating that month, along with planting notes and timely advice, and a recipe that honours the fruits of your labour. With just a little effort and planning, every garden can be tended in tune with nature, and every gardener can enjoy a host of seasonal delights from their own soil.

Gardening productively is one of Francine Raymond's greatest pleasures, heightened by the chance to chronicle her experiences in a dozen or so books; newspapers, including a six-year weekly column in the Telegraph); magazines such as The English Garden, Country Living, Gardens Illustrated and the Poultry Press; and on her blog at kitchen-garden-hens.co.uk. After a lifetime on an acre in Suffolk, populated with hens and ducks, Francine now gardens a small town plot by the sea in Whitstable with the help of her grandsons and a few bantams. She started her career as a fashion designer, moving to Milan in the seventies and returned to an abiding love - the English countryside - with her small children. Making the most of her plot, Francine opened her garden to the public - an evangelist, hoping to prove that a productive garden can be both stylish and a source of healthy food: a delight to all the senses.
