This book is aimed at the majority of us who live in terraced houses, high rise flats, town houses and semi-detached properties with a small garden and often nowhere to grow but the patio. It shows how to make the most of pots and planters; how to plan for a reasonable yield; and how never to run out of at least something to special eat.

You might not have all the space in the world, but you can enjoy all the flavour in the world. With the step-by-step instructions in this book you will be able to grow, nurture and harvest your own fruit, vegetables and herbs in a range of pots and containers, including recycled ones such as plastic milk bottles, and kitchen sinks.

Review quote

If you've ever wondered whether it was possible to grow food in a relatively small space then this is the book for you. ...I wish I'd had a copy of this book when I started out...It will get you started without a lot of expense and carry you through the inevitable queries that you'll have. -

I've looked at a lot of books on container growing vegetables and fruit - this has to be the best one so far.


Very practical, tells you all you need to know to get a good harvest of vegetables even if you don't have a 'proper' garden to grow them in. Includes crop by crop details of pot sizes needed, best planting methods etc.
