|William Woys Weaver. Jere Gettle, foreword.|
|Pages/Publication Date:||480 / 2018|
There is far more variety available to the heirloom vegetable gardener than many of us may suppose, and here William Woys Weaver offers information on the history, attributes, and cultivation of more than 300 plants, from watermelons to Jerusalem artichokes. Winning two IACP Awards following its original 1997 publication, this updated edition has been improved throughout with additional gardening advice, new plant entries, and dozens of color photos. Weaver also surveys the history of the kitchen garden and heirloom gardening in America, and suggests outlets for obtaining seeds and supplies.
