'Grow to Eat is an absolute credit to Rob, jam packed with golden garden nuggets of information for the reader. I grow food on a daily basis, but I have been inspired to get growing some unique and colourful varieties for taste and visual delight.

Grow to Eat gives you the guidance to successfully grow veg that are bursting with flavour.

We know fresh vegetables are good for us and there's no better feeling than harvesting your own homegrown produce, but Rob Smith wants to upgrade your gardening experience. From stripey aubergines and super sweet beetroot to elephant garlic and purple tomatoes, growing your own food allows you to tap into a treasure trove of different vegetables that you won't find in the shops. And with colour and flavour (and pests and diseases) always in mind, Rob advises on how to grow, when to grow and which varieties to grow to best complement your gardening space.

Whether you have a balcony, allotment or garden, with Rob's gardening expertise and practical tips and techniques, you'll be growing an abundance of gourmet veg with ease.
