Focusing primarily on the aesthetics of this new garden form, The Complete Kitchen Garden is a study in design for the home gardener. Garden site and size considerations are followed by recommendations for constructing paths, edges, beds, walls, fences, and other architectural elements. Lists of appropriate plants provide a melange of color, form, and texture choices to help ensure a successful kitchen garden. There are even resources for seed suppliers and public kitchen gardens around the world.
Throughout the book are examples of noteworthy kitchen gardens in the U.S., Europe, and Canada, both modest and grand, for inspiration. A wealth of beautiful photography by Cynthia Woodyard helps make The Complete Kitchen Garden a comprehensive tool for beginning kitchen gardeners everywhere.
