Learn how to grow onions, garlic and leeks By P B Ngeze, Acacia Stantex Publishers - CTA Friends of the Book Foundation, 2001. 27 pp. ISBN 9966 917 20 9 CTA number 1006. 5 credit points
Garlic, leek and onion may never be staple foods but countless dishes around the world would simply not be the same without them. These three plants are such obvious ingredients in a diet that they are often overlooked in agricultural handbooks. That is a pity, since all manner of considerations are involved in the cultivation of these members of the onion family (Liliaceae). After his earlier, similarly practical guides on soya bean and sweet potatoes, Pius Ngeze has given us a splendid step-by-step manual to cultivate these three crops. The book addresses climate and soil and fertiliser requirements and describes the best ways to sow, transplant, weed and harvest. For each plant there is also a small section on major diseases and pests.
