Let Sarah Raven help you grow seasonal produce all year round. With her wealth of experience, Sarah shares the most reliable and bountiful varieties to grow, her tried-and-tested favourite crops, and unusual vegetables, herbs and salads that you can’t buy in shops.

These are all based on easy, efficient and productive techniques that ensure you’ll always have something fresh to use in the kitchen.  

No matter how much outdoor space you have, you’ll be inspired to grow at least a little of what you eat. Join her to find out how.

She is a teacher, broadcaster, has a popular gardening podcast Grow, Cook, Eat, Arrange with colleague Arthur Parkinson and runs a mail order plant nursery (with 500,000 customers).
