The delicious benefits of edible perennial plants

Perennial vegetables are great because they:

  • Keep coming back!
  • Withstand pests better than annuals
  • Build and improve soil quality
  • Don’t need tilling, leaving mycelial culture (mushrooms and other fungi) and soil structure intact
  • Increase aeration and water absorption
  • Create compost, add to topsoil and bring up nutrients from deep down when dropped leaves die back each year
  • Are edimentals — delicious AND beautiful!
