The Kitchen Garden

Sowing, growing and cooking for the garden enthusiast

Lucy Mora


An artfully illustrated compendium of edible plants with simple, practical techniques and recipes for the home gardener/cook


Focusing on plants destined for the dinner plate, The Kitchen Garden is an illustrated guide to growing edible plants from sowing to harvesting. Learn when to sow, what to grow and how to make your delicious harvest into a meal.

The book features fifty-five plant profiles ranging from the everyday to unique. Each profile is illustrated and has an easy-to-comprehend table detailing the most important information: when to sow and harvest; growing time; space needed between plants; optimal soil pH; whether the plant will tolerate pots and frost; and their companions and dislikes.

A planting chart summarising the most useful information from the plant profiles is also included, along with guidance on the different climate zones and how best to start your kitchen garden. With an emphasis on seasons rather than months, the book is a beautiful and practical gift for a garden enthusiast, whether they live in the northern or southern hemisphere.

About the Author

In 2014 Melbourne illustrator Lucy Mora came across a charming 1870s cottage in Newstead, Central Victoria and decided to move there with her husband and dog. It was there that she discovered her love for growing produce and preserving. Lucy has transformed the 'mow and blow' garden she inherited into a glorious garden full of vegetables and perennials.
