Matthew Biggs's Complete Book of Vegetables
The Complete Book of Vegetables, Herbs and Fruit is a comprehensive guide to selecting, cultivating, harvesting and cooking your own fresh produce at home. The coverage is phenomenal - from the care of asparagus through the seasons to the huge number of apples that can be grown in even the smallest spaces. The book combines lavish illustration with an accessible layout and details the cultivation, companion planting, pests and diseases and culinary, medicinal and cosmetic uses for each variety. It is a real must-have for every gardener or cook.
