5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb and informative book which helped me a great deal., 20 May 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Urban Eden: Grow Delicious Fruit, Vegetables and Herbs in a Really Small Place (Hardcover)
This is a splendid book which incorporates many wonderful, easy to follow bits of information and tips. It is all brilliantly put together with a superb collection of pictures and the kids shown in the garden just bring a whole pleasent feeling to the book. It demonstrates excellent gardening techniques and even some fun and tasty recipes. This is a great book that any Urban gardener needs to create there own 'Urban Eden'.

A quarter of the book is given to garden design, and I have no use for that whatsoever! I want to know how to grow good quality fruit and veg before the garden looks pretty.

For a practical guide to growing food buy "The vegetable and herb gardener" by Dr D. G. Hessayon. If you want a coffee table cover about growing food buy this one. Some useful information, but much better is available elsewhere.
