Heritage Fruits & Vegetables
This is a sumptuously produced study and celebration of 70 heritage varieties that were in danger of being lost. Today more people grow them, not just to preserve them but because they look and taste so wonderful. With glorious photographs (was ever onion so lovingly portrayed?), this book tells the stories of fruits and vegetables, from asparagus in spring, through soft fruits, beans and salads in summer, to winter squashes and brassicas. Foreword by Raymond Blanc.
This comprehensive guide by Australia’s bestselling author of gardening books has been updated to include 300 new roses. In total, 1,500 species are photographed and listed, with anecdotal descriptions. Species are divided into four sections, with additional information on cultivation and breeders.
