Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
McClure's (The Herb Gardener, Garden Way, 1995) book on vegetable gardening emphasizes garden design and recipes more than actual vegetable growing. Popularizing the concepts of Rosemary Verey by using vegetables to please the eye as well as the taste buds, McClure provides designs for 11 different vegetable gardens, from country casual to a formal Elizabethan knot garden. Along with a detailed garden plan, she lists specific varieties of recommended vegetables, fruits, herbs, or flowers and finishes off each chapter with related recipes. Growing guidelines for each plant are contained in the chapter "Encyclopedia of Crops." McClure's designs elevate vegetable gardening from the traditional backyard plot to front-garden eye catchers, but libraries will have to judge whether local interest justifies the price.Molly Newling, Piscataway P.L., N.J.
