Welcome


On this site I'll be attempting to introduce the many and varied perennial vegetables that are available to us. 
The site is UK-based and will deal mainly, but not exclusively, with those plants that can be grown sucessfully in the British Isles and particularly those that lend themselves to being grown on an allotment scale such as the south-american tubers.

What do we mean by the term 'Perennial Vegetables'?  This is something that can be argued over, but for me it is any vegetable that will continue to be productive for more than two years.    Two vegetables that have been deliberately excluded are potatoes and runner beans as I don't feel that I can add to what has already been written about them.  
We can also ask 'What is a vegetable'. I consider this to be a plant that will be used as itself, to form part of a meal. This would specifically exclude herbs such as horseradish, that are only used to flavour other dishes.
