Product Description

Review

"Creative and fresh." (Library Journal)

Beautiful, down-to-earth, completely enticing. (ReadyMade)

A nice book for a new gardener or an old one - to sift thorough as we wait for the gardening season. (Skippy's Vegetable Garden)

“Full of wisdom and practical advice…stands apart for its tone, which is both gentle and practical, and its many fascinating sidebars and offshoots. Easy to flip through and find something fun to read in a hurry.”

Bright, cheerful, and motivating…you will wonder why anyone would ever hesitate to grow a few edibles even if they have only a fire escape or deck.

Whether you've got a porch or just a windowsill, Heavy Petal blogger Andrea Bellamy has you covered—her Sugar Snaps and Strawberries is an accessible, comprehensive guide to small-space gardening.

“An inspiring book for those with a can-do spirit but not much gardening space.”

"A stylish yet substantial introduction to growing edibles in small spaces."



“A great book for beginners and for those of us who need winter eye candy.”

“Inspiration…for veggie patches on balconies, patios, and the tiniest of city plots…complete this yummy and useful presentation.”

“A marvelous book that's entertaining, extremely useful, and lovely. I recommend it highly.” 



“An invaluable resource for aspiring greenthumbed terrace farmers.”



“I’d recommend it to any new gardener of edibles, particularly one who has limited or no access to a plot of earth she can call her own.”

“Particularly useful to those urban/suburban homes with very limited space.”

“Full of smart ideas for how to deal with a seemingly impossible growing situation.”



“A fine piece of informational, inspiring and winning work.”

Sugar Snaps and Strawberries by Andrea Bellamy is a fantastic how-to for creating your own garden in a small space. As a first-time gardener, I found this book extremely easy to read (I finished it in one evening, but can forsee returning to it frequently over the coming months as I plan, plant and harvest my garden). The author's writing style and breadth of knowledge makes me trust her judgement completely. Not only does Andrea share her insights into edible gardening, she illustrates her examples with the most amazing photographs. With images of sugar snaps and strawberries dancing in my head, I'm off to sleep to dream of all the wonderful things I'll be growing and feasting on this coming year!

For years about the only thing that I planted were tomatoes. Then last year I included a couple of other plants like beets, carrots and lettuce with minimal results. "Sugar Snaps and Strawberries" helped me to understand how I can have better success. I thought all veggies needed lots of sun. Not so. Some prefer a bit of shade. And hey! why not throw in some veggies with your flowers! With the help of this book I'm going to have an awesome garden next year! My thumbs aren't going to be the only fingers that will be "green" next summer!

This book was a great read! It reminded me how much I used to love working in the garden as a kid (snacking on peas and carrots before they were ready!). Full of great tips on how to bring the garden into a small space, I had no idea how much could be done without a yard. Looking forward to seeing what I can grow on my apartment patio this summer.
