For the green-fingered Mum


Another Farm Shop favourite from the Do Book co. collection; DO/Grow, by Alice Holden.

“Ever wanted to grow your own but don’t have the time, the space, or even know where to start? Alice Holden, one of Britain’s most pioneering female growers, has spent her life outdoors working on small and large scales – from kitchen gardens to commercial farms. In this, her first book, she’ll help optimise the space and time available to you – even if it’s a window box and 10 minutes a week.

Find out:

  • The basic tools you need to get started

  • How to make a raised bed and why you need one

  • A recipe for compost

  • How to increase your chances of success

With delicious recipes from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Pam Corbin and others that Alice has worked with over the years, Do Grow will inspire you to change your view. And plant an edible garden.”
