Edible Container Garden
Fresh food from tiny spaces
Distributed by Bookwise International
Reviewed by Mike Gowing
gardening is all the rage, but this book has an authentic stamp
- it comes from the author's own experience.
Michael Guerra, an engineer,
was a gardening novice when he and his wife decided to grow their
own veggies using the principles of permaculture in a 40 square-metre
backyard (the final pages show its plan).
Although, as the author
puts it, "the main limit to a small garden is the gardener's imagination",
it helps to have a starting point.
Guerra's eye has helped
him develop some useful garden design tips for tight space - he
emphasises the importance of good planning throughout.
It's all here, from worm
bins to window boxes, with a useful section on container-suitable
species with growing tips for each. If you've got a rooftop apartment
or even a patio that you want to do more with, try this one for
