An inspiration to people to grow and try new foods, this comprehensive guide to vegetables, herbs and spices explores old favourites as well as many little-known yet exciting food-producing plants. Over 200 species and the most popular cultivars are described, and a general introduction gives a basic background to various aspects of horticulture and plant nutrition. A table of plants for different garden situations at the back of the book is a useful ready-reference. This thorough and extensively researched book has been written by Dr Susanna Lyle, an author with over 25 years of practical and academic experience in plant and soil studies. This companion volume to Discovering Fruit and Nuts is a vital reference, with everything a gardener needs to know and much that a commercial producer would find valuable in terms of choice of varieties and marketing of the harvest.
