Overview
As the name suggests, root vegetables are vegetables whose roots form the edible parts. These vegetables are highly nutritious and they are particularly tasty if they are home-grown and eaten soon after harvesting. In this book, the main types of root vegetables are described, with useful information about the different varieties that can be grown, their history, cultivation requirements and cooking uses. There is key advice on preparing the soil for new crops, growing root vegetables from seed, and making compost. A must for the novice grower, the book also provides information for the experienced gardener who wants to experiment with new varieties.
