This month in Kitchen Garden

Take a look at what’s in the latest issue – August 2016 – plus what you can expect online and in our interactive digital magazine!

A MESSAGE FROM STEVE OTT…

August is a key month in the kitchen gardener’s year as there are not only lots of delicious harvests to gather, but lots of new sowings and plantings to get underway in order to keep those crops coming during the winter months. As a result we have a packed issue for you.

Starting on page 20 I explain how to grow one of my favourite winter veg, sprouting broccoli, while on page 68 Ben Vanheems has some helpful advice on growing a veg to help warm your cockles during the colder months – winter radish. Raspberries don’t have to be red as KG deputy editor Emma Rawlings reveals on page 54 while on page 32 Big Allotment Challenge winner Rob Smith brings even more colour to your plot with his top tips on growing highly nutritious chard.

Gluts are inevitable when growing fruit and veg yet you won’t have to waste a single berry if you take the advice offered by KG regular Julie Moore and build your own food dehydrator. Fed up with pests? Then turn to page 76 where Joyce Russell has some great top tips for helping you to keep on top of sap-sucking beasties without ever reaching for the chemicals.
