Cultivated Tastes – kitchen gardens are fresh and fashionable again

A recent piece in the Financial Times’ How to Spend it supplement by Tim Richardson extolled the joys of having a thriving kitchen garden. Based on my previous work at the Chiswick House Kitchen Garden, I offer some nuggets: “For practical advice, Karen Liebreich is a good source of information… ‘If we could do it all again, I would get the electrical and water supplies sorted out first of all… She also recommends staggering the harvest by ensuring a good mix of early-, middle- and late-cropping varieties, and enjoins: “Don’t grow any varieties you can also find in a supermarket.” ‘ FT on Kitchen Gardens May 2013
