Product Description

Review

... combines sound advice and suggestions - for various, often minute situations such as roofs and light wells - with very beautiful pictures that will inspire even those with no more 'garden' than a few steps outside. (House & Garden)

An upbeat and comprehensive book which should convince gardeners that even the dingiest concrete passageway can be transformed into something green and lush. (Scotsman)

Should provide plenty of inspiration, especially from the images, for anyone who just acquired their first potential gardening space. (Gardens Illustrated)

McMorland Hunter is the champion of the really titchy in all matters horticultural. (Independent on Sunday)

An exciting kaleidoscope of design solutions and everything you need to know about planning, maintaining the smallest garden spaces, this book is great at recommending plants to fit your own particular site. (North magazine)

For the owners of many small spaces…a book like this would be both inspirational and useful, with nicely photographed sections dealing with passages, balconies, steps, walls and so on. (Compass)

Jane McMorland Hunter tackles the subject honestly and comes up with a portfolio of ideas and illustrations that are truly ingenious. There are throughout, practical instructions on planting amd maintaining your tiny gardens making this book very good value for money. (Museum of Garden History magazine)

I've been looking for "small-garden" books for some time, but the authors' idea of "small" varies widely and wildly [I saw one newspaper story that called a 140x40 garden "small" - what do they call normal, something the size of Epping Forest?] So I thought a "tiny garden" book would at last be in the size-range that I need - my new "garden" is under two metres "long".

The book covers all aspects of gardening in tiny spaces - except back gardens - it does patios, front gardens, light wells, side alleys and dead spaces, and more that I can't remember - but no back gardens. [Maybe "small back garden" is considered an oxymoron] I should be able to adapt some of the ideas for other areas, but it would have been nice had the contingency also been allowed for.

But still glad I got it, it should give me some ideas for what to do with my abundant outdoor space.

A delightful book. Very well set out and visually pleasing. It has a useful list of plants for what goes where. This book will definitely have a permanent place in my horticultural library even though some of the photographs I have seen before in other design books, but then again I do read an awful lot of them! Highly recommended.

The Tiny Garden is great!!! I have a "Tiny Garden" and needed ideas how to make more of it; this book has lots of great ideas and tips for making any garden seem bigger, and brighter.
Definite must for anyone needing help!

HASH(0x9d22add4) out of 5 stars Nice book, great ideas 22 Jun. 2008
By ReadNReVu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has lots of ideas for plants to use in tiny yards, rooftops, or deck areas. My only complaint with the book is that while it has lots of pictures and lists of plants, it does not have line drawings with a numerical key to specific plants within a picture, as say, Taunton's Fine Gardening Magazine does. This means you pretty much have to drag the book with you to your nursery if you are not that familiar with plants.

I hope this is corrected in future printings, as it would make the book much more user-friendly for beginners. If you are already an accomplished gardener, then this would not be a problem.

The book is in very good condition and the delivery time was very good. The suggestions in the book are helpful, but a little more instruction on gardening itself was my goal.
