Essential for the Small-Space Gardener

By Rose Marie Nichols McGee and Maggie Stuckey

Everything edible that's grown in a traditional garden can be raised in a container (with a few exceptions). This book contains everything the small-space gardener needs to grow a bountiful harvest from herbs to vegetables. With only one exception (watering), container gardening is a whole lot easier. Beginning with the down-to-earth basics of soil, sun and water, fertilizer, seeds and propagation, The Bountiful Container is an extraordinarily complete, plant-by-plant guide.

  • Vegetables -- tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, carrots, beets, and more
  • Herbs -- from basil to thyme, including bay leaves, fennel, and saffron crocus
  • Edible Flowers -- such as begonias, calendula, pansies, violets, and roses
  • Fruits -- including apples, peaches, Meyer lemons, blueberries, currants, and figs-yes, even in the colder parts of the country

Great container garden book

I love this book! I live in an apartment, so a container garden is necessary. This book explains everything so well.
