Canada's Best Careers Guide 2000Book - 1999
In this lavish book illustrates the design and planting of a potager, esthetics and practicality combine to create a space that is both beautiful to look at and produces a delicious bounty. The book offers practical information on design and planting; construction such as laying pathways and edging, building raised beds and compost bins, and erecting espalier frames and plant supports; plans for traditional ground layouts and advice on style and design, hedges and enclosures.In this age of smaller gardens, the book includes a special section on the creation of a tiny space or no soil garden, with a range of vegetables suitable for container planting.Essential horticultural practices such as crop rotation, green manures, composting, and continuity of produce are examined and incorporated with simplicity and practicality, as are concepts such as companion planting and organic management.Above all, this book champions the concept that growing food need not be a strictly utilitarian process, but one that is also highly creative.
