Reviews

"From classification and ecology to propagation and morphology, the rudiments of ginger cultivation are covered in the book's opening chapters, with particular attention paid to gingers' culinary and medicinal applications. Branney then presents an encyclopedic analysis of approximately 300 varieties of gingers hardy in the temperate zones of the U.S., a relatively narrow climatological range that still yields a wide array of gardening opportunities." --Booklist "Hardy Gingers is an extremely useful book for anyone interested in the ginger family, and it is clear that there are members of this group that can be grown in many of the climate zones of the Western states." --Pacific Horticulture "Deftly covers the history of the cultivation of the different gingers. . . . Perfect for anyone with a rabid fondness for gingers and a desire to see them restored to their rightful place in horticulture-poking out of neighborhood gardens worldwide." --Biology Digest "The A-Z list of gingers he supplies includes the temperature zone and height of each along with a detailed description, and includes a very fine collection of colored photographs." --SciTech Book News "A unique, authoritative guide.
