If you're a city or suburb dweller, you need not rely on farmers’ markets or overpriced grocery stores to get ingredients for your next salad or smoothie: all you need is a balcony, rooftop, patio, or even just a window box to grow fresh, flavorful produce.

  • Packed with inspirational ideas for planning and designing your space
  • Building containers using recycled and salvaged materials
  • Raising a variety of simple foods from tomatoes to greens to exotics

Also included are lists and explanations of the diverse crops most suited to your space and gorgeous color photos on every page to demonstrate the vibrant possibilities of gardening in the heart of a bustling metropolis or the confines of your suburban property.

This book has so many great ideas for gardening in small spaces. Things like using bicycle tires and colanders for pots. I can't wait to try some of them.
