HOW TO GROW PERENNIAL VEGETABLES

HOW TO GROW PERENNIAL VEGETABLES

Perennial vegetables are a joy to grow and require a lot less time and effort than annuals. In this book Martin Crawford gives comprehensive advice on all types of perennial vegetables (edible plants that live longer than three years), including coppiced trees, aquatic plants and edible woodland species. Among the many advantages to growing perennial vegetables:

  • They need less tillage than conventionally grown vegetables, so the soil structure is not disturbed in their cultivation and carbon is retained in the soil.
  • They extend the harvesting season, especially in early spring.
  • They are often of more value to beneficial insects than are annual vegetables.
  • Many perennial vegetables contain higher levels of mineral nutrients than annuals.
