You don't need a big garden to grow great-tasting berries and fruit, crunchy vegetables or fragrant herbs, all you need is a couple of pots and to be inventive with the space you have. Use window sills, balconies, a hook on the terrace, a raised bed or hanging basket, or hang self-watering boxes on the wall.
This book tells you what you can grow and how to do it, from soil preparation to sowing, fertilisation and caring for your plants. Make use of the season with mini greenhouses, juggle with early and late crops, and use the space you have by combining what is useful with what is beautiful in exciting mixed pots.
At the back of the book you'll find great advice on how to grow vegetables, herbs, edible flowers, fruit and berries. The Authors advise growing something you love to eat. Food from your own garden tastes extra good.
An inspiring and useful text for growing edible plants in a limited space.
