Publisher Comments:

An inspirational guide to stylish allotments and community gardens from the elegant to the humble, packed with practical advice on growing and cultivation

The stylish fifth title in the My Cool series is packed with gorgeous photography and plenty of planting advice. Everyone loves to take a look through the garden gate and see what somebody else's garden looks like, and this book takes a peek at allotments and community gardens from all walks of life—including the historic Edgbaston Guinea Gardens in Birmingham, the hortillonnages or floating gardens in Amiens, and an artist's rooftop garden in Brussels. Themes include historic, a feast of flowers, community, growing inside the box, edible jungle, food from home, by water, fruit and a quick getaway. An allotment is one of the best—and cheapest ways—of getting hold of valuable gardening space to grow your own produce, along with being sociable places, great for meeting like-minded people, and this book is all the inspiration needed to begin.
