THE NEAT HOUSE GARDENS:
Early Market Gardening Around London

By Malcolm Thick. During periods of famine in the late 16th c. the English began the shift from a grain-dependent diet to one that included more vegetables. This was the impetus for the development of market gardens around London, where the Neat House gardens provided Londoners with fresh produce for over 200 years. Author Thick provides a general history of market gardening, as well as a detailed history of the Neat House gardens, including specific crops grown, gardening practices & techniques, gardeners’ earnings & standard of living. 175 pages. Softcover. Import.
