From the author of the internationally successful How to Grow Microgreens, this companion volume is a practical guide to growing edible plants 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. With over 45 edible plants described,including more unusual varieties such as water chestnut, ginger and tatsoi, there is something for all seasons.
Included is a chapter which highlights Fionna’s enthusiasm for encouraging children to grow container edibles - children enjoy eating vegetables so much more when they have grown them themselves. Well illustrated with over 100 photographs, the book contains advice on troubleshooting issues with your container plants, easy instructions on watering and plant nutrition, and also features delicious recipes to use the produce that you grow.
