In this truly innovative book Lucy Hutchings – aka She Grows Veg – proves that vegetable gardening doesn’t always require outdoor space. Through clever uses of space and containers, understanding of growing conditions and a unique, design-led approach, Lucy showcases how anyone can grow pretty much anything in their back garden, courtyard, balcony or kitchen. Lucy creates 20 projects, from living vegetable walls and hydroponics basics, to indoor squash arches and hanging spice gardens that have all the decorative style and visual interest of ornamental house plants. Lucy is blazing a trail for new-wave gardening with a mantra of anything is possible, for anyone.

Clear, modern and inspiring. * Alan Titchmarsh * Inquisitive, exciting, sumptuously photographed and a joy to read, Lucy Hutchings' passion for beautiful, edible landscapes delivers a new, exciting eye on how anyone can grow food. Fresh, inventive projects sail alongside practical advice, plant directories and growing techniques, explaining those rules one should know, why you should know them, and how you can bend them to get your plants to grow the way you want them to! Lucy's book has opened my eyes to a world of new growing opportunities, obviously gleaned through the author's own hard fought experience. Her words and ideas reach from the page, draw you in and encourage you to shake up the edibles rule books and experience a whole new way to grow, even if you don't have a garden. Literally ground breaking. * Garden Designer, Author and ex TV Presenter Ann-Marie Powell *
