  • Creative ways to grow herbs, fruit, and vegetables in your home

  • Over 100 recipes, pick and store tips and preserving ideas to make the most of your Australian vegie patch.

  • Few things taste more delicious than fruit picked straight from the tree, when perfectly ripe. This is fruit the way nature intended, not fruit that has been flown in from thousands of miles away, or stored in climate-controlled warehouses before being sealed in plastic for supermarket shelves. From ripe berries bursting with juice, to apples, plums or cherries, the new, fully revised edition of Grow Fruit shows that it’s easy to grow your own, no matter how little room you have.
