Sasquatch Books | March 8, 2011 | Trade Paperback

Apartment Gardening: Plants, Projects, and Recipes for Growing Food in Your Urban Home is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
Forget the 100-mile eat-local diet; try the 300-square-foot-diet — grow squash on the windowsill, flowers in the planter box, or corn in a parking strip. Apartment Gardening details how to start a garden in the heart of the city. From building a window box to planting seeds in jars on the counter, every space is plantable, and this book reveals that the DIY future is now by providing hands-on, accessible advice. Amy Pennington''s friendly voice paired with Kate Bingham-Burt''s crafty illustrations make greener living an accessible reality, even if readers have only a few hundred square feet and two windowsills. Save money by planting the same things available at the grocery store, and create an eccentric garden right in the heart of any living space.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must-have for absolute beginner balcony gardeners This book covers the nitty gritty basics you need to know to start your balcony garden from scratch. Very essential information on buying containers, soil, manure...etc. all the supplies you need to begin with. Plants and herbs are broken-down in a neat format: how to grow, what pot size needed, when to grow it and how to harvest. It needs a little more information on where to grow the plant (sun/shade) but that's easily found elsewhere. Later chapters include good info as you advance along. The writing flows well and is easy to reference. I have this on my e-reader and highlighted what I needed to know and used it as my shopping list when I went to the nursery. After much browsing in the Gardening section, I recommend this book along with "The Balcony Garder" by Isabelle Palmer. This one for the basics and the latter for creative ideas. Enjoy those greens!
