A practical gardening guide to growing beets, turnips, rutabagas, carrots, parsnips and potatoes, with step-by-step techniques and over 185 photographs.

As the name suggests, root vegetables are vegetables whose roots form the edible parts. These vegetables are highly nutritious and they are particularly flavoursome if they are eaten soon after harvesting. The main types of root vegetables are described and illustrated with useful information about different varieties that can be grown, their history, cultivation and requirements and cooking uses.

The section on practical cultivation details essential information on growing and caring for each type of vegetable and how to harvest and store them. There is also advice on organic cultivation, and how to deal with any pests and diseases that may occur. This book provides reliable information for the gardener who wants to experiment with new varieties.
