Use James Wong's revolutionary tips and tricks to grow: - Tomatoes that are 1.5 times sweeter than usual, with 50% more vitamin C - Chillis with double the fire power - Blueberries that are 3 times richer in antioxidants ... and that's only the beginning! Have you ever grown a batch of lovingly nurtured tomatoes only to be disappointed by the flavour when you harvest them? Bestselling gardening writer and botanist James Wong shows you how to measurably increase the flavour of grow-your-own favourites such as sweetcorn, strawberries and tomatoes with a collection of deceptively simple tips and tricks. Simply by growing the best-flavoured varieties and treating them just a bit meaner, you will not only get harvests with an intense flavour - but also slash the work involved. Combining cutting-edge science with overlooked traditional techniques, this ground-breaking book helps you to make the most of your crop, while at the same time revealing exciting new foodie varieties you never knew you could grow. James also provides 40 really simple recipes for delicious ways to eat what you've grown.

James Wong, Royal Horticultural Society

James Wong is a Kew-trained botanist, science writer and broadcaster based in London. Graduating with a Master of Science degree in Ethnobotany in 2006, he pursued his key research interests of under-utilized crop species and traditional food systems through field work in rural Ecuador, Java and southern China. He is the author of the best-selling books Grow Your Own Drugs, Homegrown Revolution and, for Mitchell Beazley, RHS Grow for Flavour (more than 64,000 copies sold) and How to Eat Better (more than 85,000 copies sold). He has presented BBC2's award-winning series Grow Your Own Drugs and co-presented, with Dr Michael Mosley, The Secrets of Your Food - a major BBC series on the science of food. He has a column in the Observer magazine. With his obsession for food almost eclipsing his love of plants, James's small London garden serves as a testing station for all manner of crops from around the world. The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) is the UK's largest gardening charity, dedicated to advancing horticulture and promoting good gardening. Its charitable work includes providing expert advice and information, training the next generation of gardeners and promoting the ecological, aesthetic and psychological benefits of gardening in an urban environment.
