"Moss offers ideas for finding space to garden, techniques for creating and maintaining gardens and basic growing information. The bulk of the book, however, is dedicated to details about plants that grow well in compact spaces, with an entire chapter devoted to that all-time favorite, the tomato." - Akron Beacon Journal
