Synopsis

Crops in Pots Growing Vegetables, Fruits & Herbs in Pots, Containers & Baskets by Rachelle Strauss, Pippa Greenwood

Like the idea of growing your own fruit, veg and herbs but don't have the room or energy? Crops in Pots is a user-friendly guide to getting a taste of self-sufficiency, growing wherever you can grab the space - whether it be your patio, balcony or window sill. Apart from the many joys of growing your own food, the benefits of container gardening are manifold: accessibility, portability, soil choice, easier pest and disease control...Find out how to get started and choose your pots, how to grow and harvest - including the most appropriate crops for small spaces, how to deal with problems and lots of great tips on how to be successful on a shoestring.
