Among the many glories of the Lost Gardens of Heligan are their remarkable productive gardens. Over a million visitors have been entranced by the serried rows of vegetables ranged out before them and have fallen to dreaming of a little part of Heligan in their own gardens and, equally important, on their own tables. Thsi book brings that dream a little closer to reality. It covers an impressive range of old varieties which flourish at Heligan, saved by enthusiasts from the onslaught of supermarket giants and EU regulations, putting them to the ultimate test - that of flavour. It draws on th Heligan team's wealth of experience both of cultivation and of the culinary arts and provides an invaluable manual for the adventurous vegetable grower.
