This book is a new and significantly revised version of the much acclaimed Charleston Kedding: A History of Kitchen Gardening, which was published in 1996. In that book the story revolved around a fictional kitchen garden, but in this new edition, the author has been able to disclose her main source and her book is all the better for being able to turn on the true story of the kitchen garden at Pyewell Park in Hampshire and its team of gardeners. The amazing secrets of the hotbed, the backsheds and the pineapple frame are laid bare in this extraordinary and delightfully written account of the ups and downs of the kitchen garden.
