I like the Bueno style and his plant associations and rotations are just as valid in the UK as in the Mediterranean. He seems very much at home with the plants he describes. Rosemary, he says, "generates a good presence." Yes. That's it exactly. --Independent
Readers in guaranteed sunnier climes might want to contemplate Mariano Bueno's 'Mediterranean Kitchen Garden' . Bueno is Spain's master of organic gardening, although much of his book applies to anyone working a patch anywhere in northern temperate regions. No recipes this time (except for making heaps of nourishing and water-saving compost; instead, there are many sound paragraphs on the cultivation of herbs, salads, fruit and vegetables and some easy-to-follow diagrams to help with the grafting and budding of fruit wood. --Hortus
