Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


More than ever, organic food is becoming a desirable option for those who are concerned about the safety of their food. A growing consumer awareness of chemically enhanced produce means that more people are turning to growing their own, however small their gardens. "Growing Food in Small Gardens" is the definitive book on growing organic fruit and vegetables in small urban spaces, including rooftops, patios and balconies. It provides the basics of planning your garden, what to sow and, where necessary, soil conditions and ideal climate considerations. It includes useful information on the varieties of dwarf and ornamental vegetables that can be grown in window boxes, growing bags or hanging baskets as well as advice on chemical-free pest and disease control. Finally a number of garden plans with detailed planting information show you how you can make the most of your space, however small.
