The Complete Book of Potatoes: What Every Grower and Gardener Needs to Know -- Book Review

The secondary title of this book says it all. What every grower and gardener needs to know. The Complete Book of Potatoes covers propagation, cultivation, insects, diseases, mutations, harvesting and most importantly storage.
An important chapter in this book is growing potatoes in the organic way. It covers organic disease, insect and weed management.  There is also a chapter on alternative techniques for growing potatoes. This is one of my favourite chapters, as I like to grow my potatoes in containers.

The list of the different potato cultivars is extensive, informative and backed up with colour plates of the varieties. The chapter on insects and diseases is backed up as well with colour plates.

Simply put this book not only being added to my personal library replacing all others.
