'Extreme Salad Man' & avid (some say obsessive) collector of perennial vegetables, Stephen Barstow talks about his new book Around the World in 80 Plants, that took 8 years to write, and 30 years of trialling plants from around the world - with a collection of over 2000 in his own garden!

If you're interested in sustainable gardening this is the man for you. He has also a keen interest in perennial vegetables that are beautiful too, so if you have a commuity garden that could do with some functional beauty check out his work.
