New book promotes fruit growing for all ages

Rosemary Sassoon's Fruit, Grow, Cooks and Preserve Your Own is published by Guild this month at £9.95.

The full-colour book is written in three parts.

First, Sassoon discusses what fruit you can grow and how to use it.

The second covers her 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, Sassoon focuses on the changing priorities we face throughout our lifetimes. Having grown produce for 50 years, in the same garden, she 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 to garden despite their personal situation.
