Success with Small-space Gardening by Graham Clarke

This is the latest in the popular Success with...series. It reveals how to make the most of a small plot, whether it be a courtyard or a window box. It features everything from design basics to how to grow fruit and vegetables. It includes a handy, illustrated A-Z directory of plants suited to small-space gardens. Space is something that all gardeners yearn for, but is a luxury that most city-dwellers don't have. This doesn't mean that areas of beautiful planting can't be made; it just takes a bit more planning. For those who have a shady courtyard, a windy balcony or a sun-baked patio, this book will help them to make the most of what they've got - whether it be to create a modern, urban oasis or just to grow some small-space-friendly veggies. It also reveals clever tricks and tips on how to make a space look bigger with vertical planting, optical illusions, using colour, perspective, containers, paving and pathways. Small gardens can be every bit as breathtakingly beautiful as any large plot. In fact, they can be even better.
