Description

Heirloom plants often have a charm lacking in commercially produced varieties. And unless these seeds are grown and saved, they will be not only forgotten, but lost, too. Based on the seed catalogs of Thomas Etty, Heirloom Plants lists exciting cultivars to be grown, along with profiles and cultivation tips. Responsible gardening, certainly but with more than a hint of romance; who could resist the lure of the splendid Hubbard Green Warty squash, or the Green Zebra tomato?

The author

Lorraine Harrison has a masters degree in Garden History from the University of London and has written several books on the subject. When not tending her own plot, she enjoys other people's gardens whether, large, small, grand or humble.
