Plentiful, Organic Vegetables from Small Spaces

Put your garden containers to work this summer. On the deck, in the garden, or even on a sunny balcony, you can grow luscious tomatoes, gorgeous artichokes, juicy strawberries, and so much more. Ed Smith has chosen, planted, tested, and tasted dozens of vegetables in all kinds of containers, and he shows you how simple and rewarding it is to grow a backyard garden even without a backyard.

Review:

"With detailed, illustrated advice on selecting and retrofitting containers, cultivation, efficient maintenance, and design plans to pull it all together, Smith's latest guide provides everything needed to grow a bounty of home-grown vegetables." Publisher's Weekly

Review:

"Anyone can grow, harvest, and enjoy homegrown veggies, even without a yard, best-selling garden guru Smith persuasively argues as he presents his step-by-step approach to container gardening...Smith's practical, assuring, timely, and handsomely produced how-to will see brisk traffic." Booklist

Review:

"Big, delicious yields from small, unlikely spaces. This is just the book the world is hungering for and it couldn't come at a better time." Roger Doiron, Founder, Kitchen Gardeners International and Leader of the White House Kitchen Garden Campaign

Review:

"Garden writer Edward Smith shares his expert knowledge on the subject in this excellent manual for both novice and experienced gardeners." The National Gardener

Synopsis:

By growing vegetables in containers, even novice gardeners can reap a bounty of organic food in very small spaces. Anyone can harvest tomatoes on a patio, produce a pumpkin in a planter, or grow broccoli on a balcony — it's easy! Ed Smith shows you how to choose the right plants, select containers and tools, care for plants throughout the growing season, control pests without chemicals, and much more. He even includes plans for small-space container gardens that are perfect for urban and suburban gardeners.
