How to Grow Edibles in Containers
Good Produce From Small SpacesBook - 2015
From the author of the internationally successful How to Grow Microgreens, this companion volume is all about growing edible plants when you only have limited space. Fionna grows a huge range of crops throughout the year on her apartment balcony and, as with her previous book, she writes candidly about the successes (and failures), those plants that crop well or not, and she introduces some more unusual varieties such as water chestnut, ginger and tatsoi. With over 45 edible plants described, there is something for all tastes and seasons. Fionna again includes delicious recipes with suggestions on how to use the produce you grow so that you can enjoy salads and cooked vegetables from your garden all year round. There is a chapter on encouraging children to grow their own favourite container edibles (children enjoy vegetables so much more when they have grown them themselves), troubleshooting any issues with your container plants and easy instructions on watering and plant nutrition.
