Chances are your balcony, porch, or patio could use a major makeover. Fern is here to walk you through the process of beautifying a small space — even when your budget is just as small. This exciting guide layers practical gardening fundamentals with creative solutions that encourage thinking outside the pot.
Maybe this means repurposing a shipping pallet to create a colorful vertical garden of nasturtiums and lobelia. Or simply seeing walls, rafters, railings, and everything in between as fair game. You'll also learn how to tackle unique challenges, like windy conditions when gardening several stories above street level, and how to care for plants and troubleshoot with the best of them.
