Joyce and Ben Russell have devised 30 kitchen garden projects that anyone can make and enjoy. Not only do the projects add decorative detail to the garden, each project is devised to either extend the season, protect crops from pests or improve yields. Apart from the obvious cost-savings benefits from growing or making your own, the desire to work with craft fulfils the need to keep improving our patch of land. These compelling projects transform your vegetable plot into somewhere more productive, more attractive and more secure. From simple woodwork projects for cloches, tunnels and frames to gadgets that deter slugs and carrot root fly, these projects are well-designed as well as decorative. Each project includes step-by-step instructions as well as a list of materials and tools you' ll need and a relative skills rating.
