Item Details

Are heirloom vegetables more difficult to grow than conventional hybrids? The Beginner's Guide to Growing Heirloom Vegetables debunks this myth by highlighting the 100 heirloom vegetables that are the easiest to grow and the tastiest to eat. Marie Iannotti makes it simple for beginning gardeners to jump on the heirloom trend by presenting an edited list based on years of gardening trial and error. Her plant criteria is threefold: The 100 plants must be amazing to eat, bring something unique to the table, and -- most importantly -- they have to be unfussy and easy to grow. Her list includes garden favorites like the meaty and mellow 'Lacinato' Kale, the underused and earthy 'Turkish Orange' Eggplant, and the unexpected sweetness of 'Apollo' Arugula. Plant profiles include color photographs, flavor notes, and growing tips -- everything beginning gardeners need to successfully grow a variety of heirloom vegetables.

Iannotti obviously cares a great deal about her subject and includes a lot of useful information; the publication is beautifully done also, with lots of juicy pictures. Very helpful and inspiring. I'll be checking out some of these heirlooms!
