        It's the holy grail of gardening: a plant that perfectly matches your tastes and the conditions in your garden. The hitch? You're not likely to find it at your local garden center. You're going to have to create it yourself.

        But don't worry - it isn't hard. After all, gardeners have been doing it for centuries, simply by saving seeds of the varieties that tasted or performed best. But you'll get even better results by following the advice in Plant Breeding for the Home Gardener. You'll learn how to set achievable goals in your breeding program, the ins and outs of genetics, how to pick the best parent plants, how to cross-pollinate, the best techniques to use for popular vegetables and flowers, and how to harvest and store seeds.

        In no time at all, you'll be producing a tomato perfect for your palate, a more fragrant rose or a pepper with just the right amount of heat!

        This collection of sparkling and unpredictable essays ranging across the whole world of gardening, and sometimes slightly beyond, comes from the acclaimed author of The Transplanted Gardener and The Potting Shed Papers. Tales of great gardeners and heroic plant hunters share space with more personal revelations: exactly why every man needs a tractor, how to deal with woodchucks or a relentless west wind, the challenge of a knotweed infestation. Botanical frauds and heroic plant hunters, splendid gardens past and present, stirring discoveries and hopeless failures … all these and more fall beneath the writer's amused and endlessly curious eye.

        Funny, informative and dependably entertaining, author Charles Elliott once again demonstrates why readers such as Bill Bryson have so enjoyed and praised his work.

Growing your own vegetables is an easy hobby for a variety of lifestyles, as it doesn't take a large amount of space to yield nutritious carrots or lettuce. All it takes is a bit of passion, care and knowledge, and the rewards are soon there to enjoy.

        In Vegetable Literacy, Deborah Madison reveals the surprising relationships between vegetables, edible flowers and herbs within the same botanical families, and how understanding these connections can help home cooks see everyday vegetables in a new light.

        This groundbreaking new cookbook celebrates the diversity of the plant kingdom. Destined to become the new standard reference for cooking vegetables, it shows cooks that, because of their shared characteristics, vegetables within the same family can be used interchangeably in cooking. It presents an entirely new way of looking at vegetables, drawing on Madison's deep knowledge of cooking, gardening and botany. For example, knowing that dill, chervil, cumin, parsley, coriander, anise, lovage and caraway come from the umbellifer family makes it clear why they're such good matches for carrots, also a member of that family. With more than 300 classic and exquisitely simple recipes, Madison brings this wealth of information together in dishes that highlight a world of complementary flavors. The recipes showcase combinations that are simultaneously familiar and revelatory, such as:

        • Griddled Artichokes with Tarragon Mayonnaise
        • Tomato Soup and Cilantro with Black Quinoa
        • Tuscan Kale Salad with Slivered Brussels Sprouts and Sesame Dressing
        • Kohlrabi Slaw with Frizzy Mustard Greens
        • Fresh Peas with Sage on Baked Ricotta
        Inspiring improvisation in the kitchen and curiosity in the garden, Vegetable Literacy will forever change the way we eat and cook.

        Just as he demystified the soil food web in his groundbreaking book Teaming with Microbes, in this new work Jeff Lowenfels explains the basics of plant nutrition from an organic gardener's perspective. Most gardeners realize that plants need to be fed but know little or nothing about the nature of the nutrients and the mechanisms involved. In his trademark down-to-earth style, Lowenfels explains the role of both macronutrients and micronutrients and shows gardeners how to provide these essentials through organic, easy-to-follow techniques. Along the way, Lowenfels gives the reader easy-to-grasp lessons in the biology, chemistry and botany needed to understand how nutrients get into the plant and what they do once they're inside. (Don't worry: You won't have to learn college-level science.) Teaming with Nutrients will make you a better informed, more successful, more environmentally responsible gardener and will give you a new appreciation for the plants you grow.
