Broadfield Court is mentioned in the Domesday book of 1086, and vegetables would have been grown there from the start. The walled garden was built around 1823, and has been providing good food for the house’s occupants ever since.

Marion Williams is an estate gardener at Broadfield Court, trained in the traditional ways by her predecessor, and now, in this fascinating book, passing on her knowledge gained over a lifetime of working with the seasons and the weather to produce wholesome food there.

Marion explains in straightforward language how she goes about growing organic vegetables in the ancient walled garden of a Herefordshire estate. The book includes lots of illustrations and recipes from the award winning Court Café menu, and takes the reader through the seasons at Broadfield Court, as the land is prepared, seeds planted and seedlings nurtured and planted out, then tended as they grow and finally harvested on a daily basis and delivered to the chefs in the kitchen for serving delicious, wholesome meals to the visitors, as fresh as could possibly be.

The plants tell us what to do
And the weather tells us when to do it
So think like a plant

But keep an eye on the weather

PDFs may contain many pages, even a whole book. To navigate through the pages, you use the Page Down and Page Up keys on the right of the keyboard. The PDF may also contain bookmarks which are displayed down the left hand side of the screen. These take you to predetermined places in the book, usually the first pages of chapters, and once there, you can go through the chapter using the Page Down key, or back with the Page Up key. At any time you can click on another bookmark and go to another place in the book, or return to the beginning. This is to enable fast navigation to wherever you wish to read.
