Publisher Comments:

Small gardens can be just as breathtaking as large luxurious plots. And whether it's a modern urban oasis or just a tiny nook in which to grow some vegetables, Success with Small-Space Gardening has the advice and guidance you need to create your intimate corner of nature. There are even clever tricks and tips for making a space look bigger with vertical plantings, containers, paving, and pathways. With its illustrated A-Z directory of suitable plants, this guide will help every city dweller and balcony lover develop a tiny green thumb.

Review:

"In this beginner's guide, gardener and writer Clarke introduces gardeners to the special considerations and potential charms of the small-scale garden. Color photographs accompany step-by-step advice on basic design, material choices, construction, cultivation practices, and plant selection. The special challenges of gardening on rooftops and balconies and in courtyards and containers are also addressed. Clarke reveals how amateurs can use tools from the professional designer's arsenal--such as color, water features, trompe l'oeil, lighting, and vertical elements--to create interest in gardens of any size. Those interested in growing fruits and vegetables will find advice on the most suitable choices for the small garden. The book also includes an illustrated directory of plants for small spaces; unfortunately, the guide lacks critical information on plants' light and soil requirements. Still, this guidebook provides enough practical tips and inspiring photographs to help the novice create a small garden with immense appeal. Color photos. (Nov.)"
