The Complete Book of Potatoes: What Every Grower and Gardener Needs to Know
9380 The Complete Book of Potatoes: What Every Grower and Gardener Needs to Know by Hielke de Jong, Walter de Jong & Joseph Sieczka, 260 pages, 8x9¾, hardcover. I challenge you to think of a question about potatoes that this book doesn’t answer. From history to cultivation to pests and diseases to potato shrines and museums, this book is a comprehensive guide for any potato enthusiast, whether hobbyist, home gardener or commercial grower. The writing is no-nonsense and somewhat dry, but the handsome still-life photographs of 60 varieties (many of which we offer in this catalog) are butter on the baked potato. Sobering photos of ghastly tuber afflictions such as hollow heart, pinkeye and the horrific blackleg illustrate the importance of buying certified potato seed each year—or with this book as your guide you could grow your own varieties from true seed, or perhaps go hunting in the Andean highlands for wild primitive potatoes sprouting from rocky slopes. The enthralling world of potatoes is at your fingertips. -Elisabeth Benjamin
