This is an easy-to-read, comprehensive guide to vegetables, herbs and spices that explores old favourites, as well as many little-known yet exciting food-producing plants. It contains an A-to-Z of more than 220 species and lists of the most popular cultivars in different countries, as well as a general introduction to various aspects of horticulture and plant nutrition. At the back of the book is a table of plants for different garden situations for useful ready-reference. This extensively researched book contains 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. It provides an inspiration for people to grow and try new foods. It is comprehensive and detailed at over 400,000 words with more than 200 colour illustrations and 50 b/w diagrams.
