There are a few main subjects such a book should cover, such as:
- the seasonal dependence of various plants (which can grow when, and when can one grow what),
- descriptions of the specific care different plants need (how/where to plant, how often to water, when to prune),
- nutritional information of the crops described (which to combine for a complete diet),
- climate dependence (which plants can grow where).
Ideally such a book would have an index of some kind where one could look up information about crops and alike (so that one could for example look for chives in the index, and find information such as that they thrive in well-drained soil with a pH of 6-7 and full sun, and should be planted in the early spring).
Do some or any of you have experience with books of this kind, and which ones would you then recommend (and why would you recommend that book)?
