A tiny garden, balcony, or sunny window ledge can hold pots of fruits, vegetables, and herbs—and in these 35 brilliant projects, Deborah Schneebeli-Morrell shows you not only how to grow them all from scratch, but how to plant them in an array of attractive containers, from colanders and woven bags to recycled cans and wooden fruit boxes. An amazing range of
crops can be grown this way, including herbs, climbing beans and peas, new potatoes and root vegetables, bell peppers and chilies, bush fruits, and cutand- come-again salad leaves. Growing your own means you can ensure that all your crops are produced to the highest standard, and this book is packed
with tips and techniques, from companion planting to deter pests to choosing the right container for the right crop, advice on feeding and watering, knowing when to harvest, and treating common diseases without using chemical sprays. Grow Your Own Vegetables in Pots will tempt the novice gardener to start growing and the more experienced gardener to produce crops that are a pleasure to grow, harvest, and eat.
