Fruit: Grow, cook and preserve your own
Rosemary Sassoon's new practical, full-colour book will encourage readers into growing and enjoying their own produce
Fruit: Grow, cook and preserve your own is a beautiful full-colour book, resplendent with illustrations and photos, taken in author Rosemary's old garden in Sevenoaks, Kent.
Rosemary has written the book in three parts. First, she discusses what fruit you can grow and how to use it. The second covers Rosemary's greenhouse and the techniques and eco-friendly methods she uses to grow her produce – she also takes a look at vegetables in this section. In the third and final part of the book, Rosemary focuses on the changing priorities we face throughout our lifetimes.
Having grown produce for 50 years, in the same garden in Kent, Rosemary examines how our life – and demands – changes the time we have to spend in the garden, from having young children and less time, to gardening in older age, with more time but less mobility. This section encourages and guides readers in all situations to keep gardening.
Rosemary’s book will encourage home growing, and guide readers on how to use their fresh produce. Her teachings hark back to the ‘Mrs Beeton’ era – with no expensive or fiddly recipes. Rosemary, who now lives in Australia but who spanned many eras of gardening life in her Kentish garden, hopes that Fruit: Grow, cook and preserve your own will inspire people of all ages.
Review copies of the book are now available from The Book Guild; Rosemary is available for interview by email and images within the book are available for republication.
