Biographie de l'auteur :

Martin started his working life a computer programmer but his passion for organic gardening quickly led to a change in career. Martin has had broad and varied horticultural/agricultural experience over the last 25 years - he has worked for the Yarner Trust in North Devon teaching small-scale organic agriculture; grown food for a small hotel on the Isle of Iona; restored the walled gardens of a manor house in mid-Devon; and run his own organic market garden and tree nursery in South Devon. His experience led him to the concept of forest gardening as a sustainable system that can flourish in our changing climate conditions and it was this that led to the founding of the Agroforestry Research Trust in 1992, where he has been systematically researching plant interactions, unusual crops, etc over the past 15 years. He currently manages a 2 acre Forest Garden in Dartington which he planted 15 years ago, he runs a commercial tree nursery specialising in unusual trees and shrubs and has an 8-acre trial site, researching fruit and nut trees. He also teaches courses on Forest Gardening and Growing Nut Crops, writes books and edits a quarterly journal, Agroforestry News. He is a director of 'Gaia', a Trust formed by James Lovelock to further his work. He lives in Dartington with his wife and 2 children. See www.agroforestry.co.uk for more information.

Présentation de l'éditeur :

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 vegetable (edible plants that live longer than three years), from ground-cover plants and coppiced trees to plants for bog gardens and edible woodland plants. There are many advantages to growing perennial vegetables, for example: * they need less tillage than conventional vegetables and so help retain carbon in the soil * the soil structure is not disturbed in their cultivation * they extend the harvesting season, especially in early spring * and, of course, they are much less work. Part One looks at why and how to grow these crops, and how to look after them for maximum health. Part Two features over 100 perennial edibles in detail, both common and unusual - from rhubarb to skirret; Jerusalem artichoke to nodding onions. This book offers inspiration and information for all gardeners, whether experienced or beginner, and also includes plenty of cooking tips. It includes beautiful colour photographs and illustrations throughout.

Description du livre UIT Cambridge Ltd., 2012. État : New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Library Journal,Starred Review- Gardeners looking to expand their edible plantings beyond the usual tomatoes and peppers will find a bounty of possibilities in these pages. Crawford's (dir., Agroforestry Research Trust; Creating a Forest Garden) first two chapters introduce the types of perennial vegetables (trees, shrubs, tubers, etc.) and provide general information on why and how to grow them. The remainder of the book is an alphabetical list, by common name (and cross referenced), of more than 100 plants, ranging from familiar favorites to many that will be new to even the most adventurous gardeners and eaters. Each plant profile includes botanical and common names, a brief description of the plant, its hardiness zones, cultivation instructions, and culinary uses. A list of seed and plant suppliers in Europe, Canada, and the United States is also included. Throughout, Crawford emphasizes sustainable, organic gardening practices, and he includes many plants that can be grown in the shade. Culinary and cultivation information is useful but brief, assuming basic horticultural and cooking knowledge. With an index by botanical name. VERDICT: This inspiring book is highly recommended for experienced gardeners who wish to broaden their horticultural and culinary horizons. N° de réf. du libraire ABE_book_new_1900322846
