Subtitled "how to have your garden and eat it", the six 30-minute BBC2 prime-time programmes shows how to make a meal a day using only home-grown produce from a suburban back garden.
The accompanying book, also called The Edible Garden, is split into three parts — "Things to know", "Things to grow" and "Reaping your harvest" — and includes chapters on vegetables, fruit, flowers, harvesting, cooking and brewing. The book also features linocuts by Fowler's husband Robert Norman.
Fowler told HW: "Last summer, despite the rain, was a ball. I have never enjoyed growing vegetables more. So it was a great privilege to have it captured on film. I do hope in some small way it might help to get others growing — to have go."
Fowler said trends for 2010 include forest gardening and making granola, yoghurt and labneh, as well as keeping chickens.
