 Synopsis  Reviews  Information
Growing food is different in the city - life is faster; space is tight - and our taste buds are stimulated by culinary influences from across the globe. Cities are also microclimates, a few degrees warmer than the countryside and our crops are protected from extremes of wind and frost. As a result, urban growers can bend the normal rules of gardening, stretching the growing season and experimenting with unusual crops. We have shops all around us, so we want to grow the choicest, gourmet fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers that you won't find or don't want to buy in the supermarket, but that are easy and satisfying to grow - like strawberries, chervil, pea shoots, squashes and many more. Tom offers tips for harvesting, preserving and freezing along with delicious recipes for each ingredient including Coriander Relish and Squash and Coconut Soup.
