An ever-increasing population and booming property prices means sections are getting smaller, but you don’t need the perfect section to grow food. Whether you have a small urban plot or a rambling, shady backyard, Homegrown Happiness will help you create the perfect garden to suit your individual needs.

Elien Lewis, an award-winning blogger and popular Instagrammer, is an advocate of the low-maintenance no-dig gardening method. She says this book is everything she is passionate about — food, gardening, foraging and low waste. Homegrown Happiness is sustainable, low-cost living at its best — providing easy-to-follow seasonal guidelines for creating a robust and healthy garden ecosystem. It follows a calendar year with comprehensive advice on:

• Preparing and maintaining your vegetable patch
• What to plant and when, whatever your climate
• How to establish a working compost bin
• Keeping pests at bay
• What to forage and the best time to harvest
• Clear and concise planting guides in chart form for every month

In Homegrown Happiness, Elien shares her favourite seasonal recipes that draw on the ‘root to tip’ philosophy, resulting in a low carbon footprint and minimal waste. This practical guide teaches readers how to embrace their space and learn what thrives and what doesn’t through simple trial and error and shows how to understand your soil, your plants and your environment.
