MEDIA REVIEWS
Stephen Barstow presents fascinating and useful information about his top 80 perennial leafy vegetables including lots of historical references, his and other recipe ideas, along with photos and more. Many of these are easily grown and can be ornamental as well as great edibles. This will be a really useful book helping extend the range of food plants for gardeners.
