When ex-fashion designer Deborah answers a knock on her door, little does she know that she is about to embark upon the growmance of her life. Handsome local MP Toby Knight persuades her to turn a patch of land outside her house into a food-growing project – with uproarious consequences.

Join in with Deborah, The High-Heeled Gardener, as she records her adventures in a worms-and-all diary. Follow her roller-coaster year of steamy sustainability, community transition, food growing and flirtation. From seedy Sundays and GM (gorgeous male) alerts to B-cup brassicas and exploding cucumbers, this is a heady journey from haute- to horti-couture.

Featuring a cast of cabinet makers and members, wassailers and wood nymphos, freegans and pot-laureates, Deborah is not only led up the garden path, but becomes an unwitting environmentalist along the way.

The High-Heeled Gardener is an hilarious horticultural handbook:
A year of digging dangerously!
