According to Eric Toensmeier, perennial vegetables "produce vegetable crops for many years without replanting, taste delicious, yield abundantly, and can be harvested when annual garden crops aren't available." Mountain Gardens grow most of the plants in Toensmeier's “Perennial Vegetables,” the comprehensive guide to growing these plants, which are a major staple in any permaculture garden.
In this workshop, we will tour the garden to see our perennial vegetable plants and discuss their propagation, cultivation, habitat, harvest, & use.
A few of the more well-known perennial vegetables in our garden include: three kinds of Apios (American Groundnut), Turkish Rocket, Ostrich Fern, Giant Solomon's Seal, Bamboo shoots, Oca, Arrowhead, Sea Kale, Good King Henry, Nettles, and Woods Nettles.
Plants and seeds for sale in our nursery. Come early or stay late to shop.
