Customer Review

on 29 September 2011
Ever wondered why early Protestants eschewed the potato whilst devouring the parsnip? Or how the introduction of Russian comfrey was the result of a communication error? Then Spade, Skirret and Parsnip is the book for you.

Concentrating mainly (but not exclusively) on domestic production, Laws guides us on the ancestry of vegetables to the histories of the allotment and organic movements and the working conditions of gardeners on country estates. At around 200 pages, this concise volume can provide no more than an overview of the history of vegetable growing, but is nevertheless a welcome inclusion to the bookshelves of any grower or gourmet.
