From the author of the internationally successful How to Grow Microgreens, this companion volume is all about growing vegetables and herbs in limited spaces. Fionna grows a huge range of plants on her apartment balcony and writes candidly about which ones crop well, and which don’t, and also introduces more unusual varieties, such as water chestnut, ginger and tatsoi. With over 45 edible plants described, there is something for all seasons.
Included is a chapter which highlights Fionna’s enthusiasm for encouraging children to grow container edibles. She says children enjoy eating vegetables so much more when they have grown them themselves. Advice on troubleshooting issues and easy instructions on watering and plant nutrition, and also delicious recipes for using the produce you grow, complete the book.
