    Review quote
    '[This book shows that] Gardening is not just about allotments, trips to garden centres on a Sunday afternoon, and Radio 4 playing in the backgroud... it's about having fun -- creating produce; eating it, drinking it -- you won't disagree when you see the recipe for Grow Your Own Mojito' Amelia's Magazine 'The merry band of authors shows how the frustrated can channel their enthusiasm by container growing, harvesting wild plants, guerrilla gardening and even horticultural art installations' The Guardian 'A vibrant and quirky guide for anyone wishing to transform their outdoor space' Organic Home & Garden
