Imagine growing vegetables that require just about the same amount of care as perennial flowers and shrubs, need no annual tilling or planting, yet thrive and produce abundant and nutritious crops throughout the season. In this DVD a culmination of workshops recorded in Mexico, Florida, and Massachusetts plant specialist Eric Toensmeier introduces gardeners to more than 100 species of little-known, underappreciated plants. Ranging beyond the usual suspects (asparagus, rhubarb, and artichoke) to include such delights as ground cherry, ramps, air potatoes, the fragrant spring tree, and the much-sought-after, antioxidant-rich wolfberry (also known as the goji berry), Toensmeier explains how to raise, tend, harvest, and cook with plants that yield great crops and culinary satisfaction. Toensmeier also takes viewers on a plant-by-plant tour of his garden in Massachusetts. In Toensmeier's book, Perennial Vegetables (Chelsea Green, 2007), the adventurous gardener will find information, tips, and sound advice on less-common edibles that will make any garden a perpetual, low-maintenance source of food. In his book, readers will find perennial vegetables are perfect as part of an edible-landscape plan or permaculture garden. Profiling more than a hundred species, with dozens of color photographs and illustrations, and filled with valuable growing tips, recipes, and resources, Perennial Vegetables is a groundbreaking and ground-healing book that will open the eyes of gardeners everywhere to the exciting world of edible perennials."

Review quote

Midwest Book Review- Perennial Vegetable Gardening with Eric Toensmeier is an instructional DVD that works well either stand-alone or as a companion to Toensmeier's book, Perennial Vegetables. A lengthy program teaches gardeners about more than 100 species of lesser-known edible perennial plants, including ground cherry, ramps, air potatoes, and much more. Tending, harvesting, and cooking with perennial vegetables are all covered, and viewers are also invited to tour Toensmeier's beautiful Massachusetts garden! A searchable database of perennial vegetables rounds out this wonderful how-to DVD. Perennial Vegetable Gardening with Eric Toensmeier will bring joy to active gardening enthusiasts and "armchair gardeners" alike, and is highly recommended for both private and public library gardening DVD collections. 143 min.
