Reviews of Perennial Vegetables

“Toensmeier’s groundbreaking guide is destined to become the bible for this new class of edible gardening.”
- Carol Haggas, Booklist
“Full of surprising edible possibilities, this book promotes fresh thinking as to what a vegetable garden can be… This topic is presented in a thorough and engaging way… It teaches responsible gardening practices without preaching”
- From the American Horticultural Society’s announcement of the 2008 AHS Book Award

“Toensmeier’s knowledge of edible plants is impressive and inspiring. His excitement for a sustainable landscape helps us focus away from buying food to harvesting it naturally. Perennial Vegetables offers an excellent range of edible plants for long-term cultivation and enjoyment.”
- Ellen Ecker Ogden, co-founder of The Cook’s Garden seed catalog, author of From the Cook’s Garden
“That there are more perennial vegetables than asparagus is no surprise, but that there are more than 100 species we North American gardeners can choose from is news. Toensmeier’s Perennial Vegetables, the first comprehensive guide to growing them, will have all of us reexamining our plans for next year’s vegetable plot.”
- Karan Davis Cutler, author of Burpee: The Complete Flower Garden
“Eric Toensmeier has comprehensively filled a huge gap in the sustainable landscape. Perennial Vegetables lets you put away your tiller, and covers everything you need to grow, harvest, and eat vegetables and greens that will keep coming back year after year.”
- Toby Hemenway, author of Gaia’s Garden
