About this book

Gardening on a small scale is a necessity for most people, simply because they do not have room to be more expansive. But making the most of a small garden space can also be a fascinating pursuit in its own right. Even in the centre of the city a small garden can provide fresh fruit and vegetables, and still be an inviting place to relax. The Encyclopedia of the Small Garden presents the reader with a wealth of practical information as well as a host of great ideas on how to make the most of limited space available. There are section on "vertical gardening", how to create and maintain small ponds and water features, growing flowers and fruit on a balcony or patio, and so much more. Broad in range, this classic book will help the reader create a herb garden, choose the best vegetables, and plant beautiful containers. In short it is the ideal single-volume source of help and inspiration for those blessed with a small garden. Illustrated in colour throughout, this book features some 1000 instructional and step-by-step photographs to show the reader how to achieve the best results, while over 500 photos of plants and effects provide a touch of inspiration.
