4.0 out of 5 stars Perennial vegetables
This is the most complete book I have seen on perennial vegetables. The short general introduction is a summary of a few gardening techniques - see other books on permaculture and organic gardening for more detail if you are a beginner.

3.0 out of 5 stars bit disaponting as rather American
I didn't check to see that this was American as I had seen it on a UK eco site - and found it here for less. However quite a few of the crops you wouldn't have a chance of growing outside in the Uk. There is some useful info though, and lovely photos.

This is the most complete book I have seen on perennial vegetables. The short general introduction is a summary of a few gardening techniques - see other books on permaculture and organic gardening for more detail if you are a beginner. The articles on each vegetable (over 100 of them) are the heart of the book and are thorough, interesting and often based on the author's personal experience. The book is very much centred on the USA and Canada but with occasional references to other countries. There is a leaning towards organic gardening but the book is not focused there. Many of the vegetables are tropical or sub-tropical so European readers will find a great deal of general interest, but will have to search for ones they can grow. I particularly liked and learned from the descriptions of water garden plants.
