By: Penelope Bennett (Author)
176 pages, 80 colour & b/w illustrations
In a space that measures only 5 × 2.5 m (16 × 8 ft), outside her kitchen window, high up on a London rooftop, Penelope Bennett cultivates a kitchen garden that includes artichokes, aubergines, beans, peas, tomatoes, peppers, alpine strawberries, raspberries, a cornucopia of herbs, 31 kinds of potato and six different fruit trees, among them a fig that fruits with spectacular abundance.
Window-Box Allotment acts as a guide to make an outdoor space, however tiny, equally prolific.
