Garden Anywhere is an apartment-dwelling wannabe-horticulturalist's dream. With easy-to-follow instructions and super-creative container garden ideas — like making window boxes out of wine crates and growing potatoes in feed sacks — this book is perfect for the DIY urban homesteader. It inspired me to plant a lettuce garden in a dresser drawer. 'Nuff said.

Publisher Comments:

Garden Anywhere. Have a small patch of soil? Or just a window box? Not a problem. Garden Anywhere shows how anyone can create an oasis in the smallest of spaces. We're not talking just a simple pot of marigolds, here. Garden Anywhere outlines everything an aspiring gardener needs to know to sow a bounteous, thriving garden.

Alys Fowler, trained at the New York Botanical Garden, guides readers through the process from the ground up — from planning the garden to composting, pruning, harvesting, and propagating. Stylish photos illustrate the how-tos while Alys shares tips on creating gorgeous container gardens, herb gardens, kitchen gardens and more, without spending a fortune.

Extreme Gardener, June 13, 2009 (view all comments by Extreme Gardener)
Garden Anywhere kept me happily fascinated through the entire, long flight home from Portland to Oklahoma City this week.

This is definitely not a book about how to create a Better Homes and Gardens, glossy, photo-ready design of expensive fences, furniture and saucy plant collections. The key words in the title are "without spending a fortune". It is written by a well educated horticulturist, a citizen of the United Kingdom, who doesn't mind being photographed with her fingernails full of dirt and hair in a frizztastic knot. My favorite photo is Ms. Fowler standing in a dumpster with her dirty Keds, cotton summer dress and snazzy sun glasses hunting for throw-away lumber to build a compost box or cold frame.

Healthy plants are the key to a great garden, and the author cheerfully disregards any expensive solution to providing everything a plant needs.

Her advise is wise, practical, easy to understand, completely do-able by gardeners planting on windowsills, on rooftops, in small back yards, or on whole acres, and moslty, her ideas are supremely CHEAP!

With its beautiful photography and Alys Fowler's fashion, this is one gardening book to get your hands on. Fowler writes in a conversational, accessible way that had me torn between finishing the book in one sitting or putting it down to pick up a shovel.
I've never been as interested in a gardening book as I was in this one...and I've owned several.
Great book on staking claim to your fistful of dirt, no matter where you live.
