This is the book I’ve been waiting for and didn’t even know it.
And the timing is perfect.
I’ve been so excited about permaculture, and perennial vegetables are a big reason why. BUT, after asparagus and rhubarb, I’ve been sort of clueless about where to go from there.
This book is the master course in exactly that–where to go after asparagus.
It has all the nitty-gritty on all the lovely edibles that give and keep on giving. Each species is profiled in detail, from a general overview, history and ecology to a crop description, climate preferences, naturalization status, to pest, disease and weed problems.
But it goes on–harvest and storage, uses (vital information considering the rarity of many of these plants) and related species and breeding potential.
Plus, great photos and illustrations of the plants, so you can actually see these plants and their fruit.
This is the perfect companion to long winter nights as the seed catalogs are coming in. Solid information to help make good choices.
We’ve got two copies of this American Horticultural Society Book Award winner to give away to two happy gardeners. Just click here to visit the site of the publisher and enter for the random drawing.
Best of luck!
