Regrown is a beginner's guide to growing fruit and vegetables from kitchen scraps. With a focus on repurposing food produce found in any supermarket, the text shows how to regenerate, propagate and give new life to cuttings otherwise bound for the waste bin. Many of the examples can be grown indoors- no matter how small your home.
Ranging from fruits and herbs that will sprout in a matter of days, to vegetables that will delight in later seasons, this easy-to-follow book includes everything from spring onions and garlic to ginger, avocado and even pineapple. Paul and Robin guide budding gardeners through the simple process of reusing everything from carrot tops and mushroom stalks to cabbage and bok choi leaves from their weekly shop to grow plants that are every bit as delicious as their first incarnations. What's more, all you need is a small jar or container, and a tapful of water, before letting nature do its thing.
Paul and Robin prove that busy urban living is by no means prohibitive to simple vegetable and herb gardening, with their fuss-free approach even the most time-and-space poor can grow food indoors.
