Transform Your Balcony, Porch or Patio to a Lush Garden

Fern Richardson

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.

  • Learning the essentials for success
  • Attracting wildlife to your garden
  • Planning and planting for privacy
  • Creating an upward, tropical oasis

Softcover. 188 pages. Timber Press 2012.
