In this book from kitchen-garden guru, Joyce Russell is 30 decorative vegetable-growing projects that anyone can make and enjoy. All the projects are devised to extend the season, protect crops from pests or improve yields. Apart from the obvious cost-savings from growing or making your own, the desire to work with craft fulfills the need to improve your patch of land. These compelling projects transform your vegetable plot into somewhere more productive, more attractive, and more secure.

From simple cloche projects to making tunnels and frames onto design solutions that deter slugs and carrot root fly, these projects are well-designed, functional, and decorative.
