Edible Perennials by Rebecca Stewart Description

Dive into the world of sustainable gardening with “Edible Perennials,” a comprehensive guide that brings the forgotten bounty of perennial vegetables back into the spotlight. Authored by Rebecca Stewart, this book is a treasure trove for gardeners looking to cultivate a diverse and resilient food supply.

Book Summary

Perennials in the vegetable garden are nothing new; many old gardens relied on easy-care perennials and self-sowers as the backbone of their food supply. It is only in modern times that we have moved away from these hardy plants in favor of hybrid vegetables, whose seeds no longer produce true to type. However, there has been a resurgence of interest in heritage crops, a renaissance of seed savers, and a rise in the popularity of food forests, all of which have brought perennial vegetables back into the limelight.

Today, many of these perennial edibles are unknown, and apart from staples like asparagus and rhubarb, they are rarely found in grocery stores or supermarkets. “Edible Perennials” introduces you to over 150 plants, many of which may already be growing in your garden, and provides guidance on how to cook and enjoy these nutritious, sustainable crops.
