Competition time! Win a copy of Martin Crawford’s new book ‘How to grow perennial vegetables’

Martin Crawford of the Agroforestry Research Trust has just published a wonderful new book, “How to grow perennial vegetables”.  It covers why and how to grow them, how to look after them, and then goes through over 100 edible perennials in detail.  It’ll have you drawing up “I must try growing that” lists and looking at your garden in a whole new way.  We have 5 copies to give away to whoever can come up with the correct answers to our brain-stimulating competition. 

All you have to do is to let me know (by email to rob (at) before midday on Friday 4th May) which two of the following is NOT an edible perennial (just email me the numbers of the made-up ones):

  1. Wolfberry
  2. Babbington’s leek
  3. Partridge berry
  4. Monk’s rhubarb
  5. Bowle’s mint
  6. Monckton’s sausage chive
  7. Air potatoes
  8. Duke of Argyll’s tea tree
  9. Duck potato
  10. Abyssinian exploding carrots

Good luck!
