Even with limited growing space, you can reap a big harvest by planting in pots, tubs and other containers. Written by the author of The Vegetable Gardener's Bible, widely considered an essential gardener’s reference, this book offers sound advice on everything from choosing practical tools and space-efficient planters to harvesting and pest control.
There are plenty of design ideas, too, including a wide range of suggested plant combinations that not only look good but also grow well together. It includes detailed instructions on cultivating over 40 vegetables, 20 herbs and seven edible flowers, as well as composting, making your own self-watering containers and preparing soil mixes.
