In mid-2014, passionate grower and gardening author Fabian Capomolla decided to up stumps and move to Italy for a year with his young family in tow. From living in Lucca Fabian discovered that growing food the Italian way is defined by how they approach the task: with simplicity and without over complicating it. This book will show you – in simple, Italian-style terms, how to set up and maintain your veggie patch, and the extensive A-Z plant guide will help you decide what to grow in it. There’s a chapter on problems you might encounter and remedies to fix them, along with handy tips scattered throughout. Some of these tips have been expanded into easy-to-follow activities like how to build your own barbecue or make your own insect repellent. You’ll also find a selection of simple and delicious recipes, so you can cook just like Nonna, and a glossary to help decode common gardening terms.
