RHS James Wong book aims to turn tables on standard horticulture advice

In RHS Grow for Flavour, publishing in March 2015, James Wong advocates a system that he says will transform the flavour of home-grown produce.

Wong says gardeners can grow tomatoes that are 1.5 times sweeter, with 50 per cent more vitamin C, strawberries with 100 times the aroma, chillies with double the fire power and blueberries that are 3 times richer in antioxidants.

He added that, "far from guaranteeing us superior eating quality, some growing practices actively conspire to water down crop flavour, delivering measurably worse results".

Publisher Mitchell Beazley said: "Turning the tables on standard horticultural advice, his radical new approach was developed through his review of over 2,000 scientific studies from around the world, translating the geek speak into a simple set of tips and tricks that even the newbie grower can master."
