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 Do Grow, she’ll help optimise the space and time available to you – even if it’s just a window box and 10 minutes a week – with simple-to-follow guidance, plus advice on:
- The basics for your gardening tool kit
- How to make your own compost
- Common garden pests to watch out for
- How to keep your soil fertile
With delicious recipes from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Pam Corbin and others that Alice has worked with over the years, Do Grow is an accessible and inviting guide to growing, harvesting, and preparing farm-to-table meals from your very own edible garden.
Since their launch in 2013, The Do Book Co have been publishing inspirational pocket guides to help creative entrepreneurs, makers and Doers work smarter and create positive change. Written by experts whose stories and ideas have inspired others to go and Do, the collection spans design, business, wellbeing and sustainable living with each book focusing on the ‘doing’ rather than the background theory. Concise, practical guides that make it easier to Do stuff.
There are now 30+ books in the collection and we're honoured to be stocking a small range. A royalty from each copy sold goes to the author and back to the Do Lectures in Wales - the annual event we continue to attend and where we source all our authors.
