Now that growing your own food is back in fashion — for health, financial, and environmental reasons — Mariano Bueno gives full practical details on how to grow vegetables alongside fruit trees and a variety of aromatic, medicinal and ornamental plants and herbs. He gives the individual requirements of common garden vegetables and popular fruit trees and provides a calendar that describes how to care for the kitchen garden through the gardening year. Explaining how to meet the particular challenges of growing edible plants in a hot, dry climate, with advice on matters such as irrigation, the book will be useful for those who live in a Mediterranean area or find themselves gardening in ever-hotter, dry climates. But it is also abundant in expertise on gardening in other climatic conditions, too, and is available here to an English-speaking audience for the first time.

Mariano Bueno is Spain's top organic gardener and the author of a number of gardening books. Evelyn Fitzherbert is the granddaughter of the novelist Evelyn Waugh. She lives in SpainReview:
I like the Bueno style and his plant associations and rotations are just as valid in the UK as in the Mediterranean. He seems very much at home with the plants he describes. Rosemary, he says, "generates a good presence." Yes. That's it exactly. -- Anna Pavord Independent
