Perennial Vegetables

Release Date: 2007-05-16
Genre: Gardening

There is a fantastic array of vegetables you can grow in your garden, and not all of them are annuals. In Perennial Vegetables the adventurous gardener will find information, tips, and sound advice on less common edibles that will make any garden a perpetual, low-maintenance source of food. Imagine growing vegetables that require just about the same amount of care as the flowers in your perennial beds and borders—no annual tilling and potting and planting. They thrive and produce abundant and nutritious crops throughout the season. It sounds too good to be true, but in Perennial Vegetables author and plant specialist Eric Toensmeier (Edible Forest Gardens) introduces gardeners to a world of little-known and wholly underappreciated plants. Ranging beyond the usual suspects (asparagus, rhubarb, and artichoke) to include such "minor" crops as ground cherry and ramps (both of which have found their way onto exclusive restaurant menus) and the much sought after, anti-oxidant-rich wolfberry (also known as goji berries), Toensmeier explains how to raise, tend, harvest, and cook with plants that yield great crops and satisfaction. Perennial vegetables are perfect as part of an edible landscape plan or permaculture garden. Profiling more than 100 species, illustrated with dozens of color photographs and illustrations, and filled with valuable growing tips, recipes, and resources, Perennial Vegetables is a groundbreaking and ground-healing book that will open the eyes of gardeners everywhere to the exciting world of edible perennials.

Über das Leben, das Gärtnern und die Freundschaft In diesem faszinierenden Briefwechsel tauschen sich die beiden legendären englischen Gärtner Beth Chatto und Christopher Lloyd, langjährige Freunde und enthusiastische Pflanzenliebhaber, über ihre so unterschiedlichen Gärten, aber auch über ihre Erfahrungen, Erfolge und Enttäuschungen aus; sie berichten von Erlebnissen, gemeinsamen Freunden, kulinarischen Genüssen und den Freuden und Leiden des Alltags. Sehr persönlich und liebenswert diskutieren sie ihre Ansichten und Einsichten über das Leben, die Musik, die Jahreszeiten und die Natur. Ihre Lebenswege und Ausgangsbedingungen sind sehr unterschiedlich: auf der einen Seite Beth Chatto, die als Autodidaktin ihre heute berühmten Beth Chatto Gardens in East Anglia über mehr als 40 Jahre dem kargen Boden abgetrotzt hat und damit zeigt, was unter schwierigsten Bedingungen möglich ist; auf der anderen Seite Christopher Llyod, der das historische Anwesen Great Dixter in Sussex mit seinen zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts von Sir Edwin Lutyens angelegten Gärten von seinen Eltern übernommen und sehr kreativ weiterentwickelt hat. Beide haben mehrere Bücher über ihre Gärten veröffentlicht und wurden weltweit mit zahlreichen Preisen und Anerkennungen ausgezeichnet. • Faszinierender Briefwechsel zweier legendärer Gärtner • Persönlich und berührend • Wunderbare Lektüre für alle Gartenfreunde
