Growing Successful Polycultures in Small Spaces

By Anni Kelsey
Foreword by Eric Toensmeier
Pub Date: April 15, 2014


Do you dream of a low-maintenance perennial 
garden that is full to the brim of perennial 
vegetables that you don’t have to keep 
replanting, but have only a small space? Do you 
want a garden that doesn’t take much of your time 
and that needs little attention to control the 
pests and diseases that eat your crops? Do you 
want to grow unusual vegetable varieties? You can 
have all of this with Edible Perennial Gardening.

Anni Kelsey has meticulously researched the 
little-known subject of edible perennials and 
selected her favorite, tasty varieties. She 
explains how to source and propagate different 
vegetables, which plants work well together in 
polycultures, and what you can plant in small, 
shady, or semi shady beds, as well as in sunny areas. It includes:

• Getting started and basic principles
• Permaculture, forest gardening, and natural farming
• Growing in polycultures
• How to chose suitable leafy greens, alliums, roots, tubers, and herbs
• Site selection and preparation
• Building fertility
• Low-maintenance management strategies

If you long for a forest garden but simply don’t 
have the space for tree crops, or want to grow a 
low-maintenance edible polyculture, this book 
will explain everything you need to know to get 
started on a new gardening adventure that will 
provide you with beauty and food for your household and save you money.
