- Washington Gardener

"Satisfying ... There's an abundance of information and tantalizing pictures."
- The New York Times

This new edition of the huge, classic reference Vegetables, Herbs and Fruit is updated in design - with more and better color - and expanded by 60 pages, covering a total of 70 vegetables, 100 herbs and 100 popular fruits. The most current information on plant varieties and cultivation techniques make it the essential sourcebook for all food gardeners, especially for anyone who wants to grow their own produce and who feels that they could use some expert advice.

The topics include:

  • Species and common names
  • Recommended varieties
  • Cultivation techniques
  • Container growing
  • Harvesting and storing
  • Pests and diseases
  • Companion planting
  • Medicinal uses
  • Culinary uses with recipes
  • And other uses and warnings.

The coverage is phenomenal - from the care of asparagus through the seasons to the huge number of apples that can be grown in even the smallest spaces. Lavish illustrations in an accessible layout, and clear and accurate text applicable to all regions invite readers to browse and try growing something new.
