James Wong Incredible Edibles
A revolution in the garden – a completely new range of fruit and vegetables to grow – and eat. James’s idea is revolutionary. As the demand for ‘home-grown’ produce increases, it’s the perfect time to introduce a new range of tasty and healthy alternatives to the humble spud or lettuce. And who better to blaze the trail than the vastly knowledgeable James Wong, who tells us what to grow and how to cook, as well as the special properties of each plant. James Wong is the presenter of his own awardwinning BBC2 television series Grow Your Own Drugs. He trained at the Royal Botanical Gardens and is a four-time RHS medal-winner for gardens at the Chelsea Flower Show. He lives in west London.
