Book Description

6 Jan 2013

Do you live in an apartment with a balcony, fire escape or rooftop terrace? Most city dwellers neglect these spaces or use them for nothing more than hanging laundry and storing bicycles. And for a long time, so did I.

Several years ago I decided to transform my under-used balcony from a lifeless concrete pad into a little garden in the sky. Every year I grow a small harvest of vegetables such as tomatoes, peppers, beans and peas, and more than enough herbs to satisfy our culinary needs. Sometimes I even grow watermelons. You don’t need to live in the country or have a big yard to own a productive garden.

This book will guide you through the challenges of container gardening in one of the most sterile of urban environments: a high-rise balcony. With topics including:

  • Container gardening basics
  • Small space composting and vermicomposting
  • Starting plants indoors from seed
  • Self-watering containers
  • Hand-pollination
  • Diagnosing common plant problems

And detailed growing instructions for all of my favorite garden herbs and vegetables

5.0 out of 5 stars The best buy ever 21 April 2013
By Kenn
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What can I say. I have several books on container garnening. This is number one. It covers almost everything. The photos are in black and white but the text to discibe them is great. There are several useful drawings to give you good ideas how to get around problems and also drawings how to make simple selv-watering comtaianers. In depth explaintions how to spout seeds, make them spout and grow to give abundance yield. The only set back is that the auther covers just elleven of the most popular crops -beans, beats, cape gooseberry, lettuce,peas, peppers. potatoes. radishishes. swiss chad, tomatoes and watermelon. On the other hand ther are lots of detailed information on a lot of herbs.Yes. my favorite balcony book.
