The Collective Berridale
My Tiny Veggie Patch Book
Food can be grown just about anywhere and lack of space should not put you off growing and enjoying the taste of your own fresh vegetables, free of chemical residues. Not everyone has access to outside space or what we traditionally think of as a garden, but we all have window ledges, doorways, often stairways, sometimes even a balcony or roof space. this book offers solutions and inspirations for these tricky spots that we frequently overlook or neglect, and also highlights some unusual growing spaces such a miniscule balcony in New York City that provides a wealth of vegetables, and an innovative system of hexagonal polytunnels full of salad leaves in Amiens, France.
You can grow practically anything in almost any type of container. through inspirational photographs of real plots and pots this book explores all sorts of possible growing spaces: from small plots to small pots, pots on balconies and roof gardens, window boxes, old tyres and kitchen sinks, hanging baskets and growbags.
Filled with practical advice, inspiration, planting and design ideas, My tiny Veg Plot tells you how to prepare your beds whatever the size and situation; there is advice on filling containers, creating ingenious planters, using planting mediums, soil and water and which fruit and vegetables will thrive in which spot. My tiny Veg Plot contains straightforward information on what to grow and how to grow it, from seed to ready to eat; from tomatoes, peppers, chillies, cucumbers, lettuces and salad leaves, runner beans, beetroot, leeks and many sorts of herbs to provide delicious food for your table. there is even advice on patio fruit trees that are ideal for containers.
