Eat Your Front Garden, which could be called the “invisible allotment,” offers suggestions for edible plants which are easily grown in ornamental gardens. The book gives detailed advice on how to grow and eat the produce from these plants, many of which you may already be growing. Your front garden won’t look like an allotment, but you’ll still get a significant amount of food out of it.
