A perennial favourite,
This review is from: The Edible Container Garden: Fresh Food from Tiny Spaces (Paperback)
This was one of the first books I read on gardening, and it's still one of my favourites. The author turned a suburban back garden into an edible paradise, and there's lots of useful information here for novices and keen gardeners alike.
Throughout the book the photos are inspirational, full of ideas on how you can make even the smallest of plots productive. Guerra takes you through the basics - soil and compost, tools, hard landscaping, pests and diseases - and shows you how to grow not only vegetables and herbs but fruit as well.
At the back of the book there is an invaluable guide to which size of container suits each crop, lists of suggested plants and a detailed plan of the author's garden that shows you just what is possible - and it's all done in an environmentally friendly way, following permaculture principles.
Definitely one to have on the shelf if you're thinking of growing crops in pots or small spaces.
