Ornamental Vegetable Gardening demystifies growing vegetables and explains how a vegetable garden can be as beautiful to look at as it is productive, healthy and economic to use.

In her clear, attractive text Sally Gregson explains how the principles of good design and the use of colour, form and texture can be used to transform a garden of vegetables, flowers and herbs.

The practicalities are covered simply to guide you step by step through the process of:

  • making a scale plan
  • choosing the materials
  • preparing the ground
  • sowing and growing
  • looking after your vegetables organically
