Hill, Fionna

This book is all about growing vegetables and herbs in limited spaces.  The author 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.

How to Grow Edibles in Containers is ideal for anyone interested in growing their own food and sustaining a healthy diet.
