Perennial vegetables are a joy to grow and require a lot less time and effort than annuals. In this book Martin Crawford gives comprehensive advice on all types of perennial plants (plants that live longer than three years), including ground cover plants, coppiced trees, plants for bog gardens and edible woodland plants. They need less tillage than conventional vegetables and so help retain carbon in the soil,they extend the harvesting season, especially in early spring and, of course, they are much less work.
Part One looks at why and how to grow these crops, and how to look after them for maximum health.
Part Two features over 100 perennial edibles in detail, both common and unusual – from rhubarb to skirret; Jerusalem artichoke to nodding onions. This book offers inspiration and information for all gardeners, whether experienced or beginner, and also includes plenty of cooking tips. It includes beautiful colour photographs and illustrations throughout.
"At last an indepth book on perennial vegetables combined with Martin Crawford's usual diligence of research - essential reading."
