Flowers & Vegetables for 2002
IN THE VEGETABLE GARDEN, it was the year of the tomato. There are many new and improved tomato varieties on the market—some are heirlooms that are being reintroduced, others are new hybrids. This year’s offerings range from a tomato bred to be especially high in lycopene, a chemical thought to help prevent heart disease and certain cancers, to a tomato from Ukraine in the shape of a pear. Outside the vegetable garden, of course, there are scores of new annuals, perennials, trees, and shrubs. On the following pages, we’re sure you’ll find delights to tempt even the most experienced gardeners.
