Growing Chinese vegetables in your backyard
Growing Chinese Vegetables in Your Own Backyard gives the interested gardener some plant-by-plant advice on planting, growing, and harvesting each vegetable. It includes more than 40 Chinese vegetables and herbs. We are all familiar with the snow pea but maybe not the Chinese pumpkin. For every plant, you will also find simple recipes and tips for culinary uses.
Many Chinese herbs and vegetables are very easy to grow in containers as well as in traditional beds. Container gardeners will find a section dedicated to plants that thrive in containers and specific advice on how to keep plants healthy, happy, and productive in their small gardens.
There is also a chapter on water gardens. Water chestnuts, taro, arrowhead, and Chinese lotus can be grown successfully in tubs as small as 25 gallons. Best of all, water gardens never need to be watered, mulched, or weeded. If you're interested in expanding your range of vegetables and love Chinese greens and exotic vegetables, this book will get you started with great advice and detailed instruction for both growing and cooking.
