Synopses & Reviews
A charming introduction to container gardening.
The author has cultivated a tiny but functional vegetable garden on the roof terrace of her Chelsea home. Making use of every inch of available space, her windowsills and floors are crammed with pots while her window boxes are filled with fruit, salads, vegetables and flowers. In this delightful book Penelope Bennett shares a year in the life of her extraordinary garden while giving practical advice on how to plant and maintain your own container garden - no matter how small.
A guide to month-by-month container gardening for those wishing to maximize all available gardening space. The author has managed to cultivate a fully functional vegetable garden on the roof terrace of her London home. She also includes innovative ideas such as creating a wormery and a compost bin.
With clear and practical instructions, this essential guide to small-scale organic gardening is a book for the true urban gardener, and an inspiration to anyone with the tiniest balcony or even just a window-box.
