Big Gardens in Small Spaces: Out-of-the-Box Advice for Boxed-in Gardeners by Martyn Cox

WALLS, WINDOWSILLS, PATIOS, POTS, AND EVEN SHADY CORNERS BURSTING WITH PLANTS! At last count, Martyn Cox had more than 250 different plants growing in his 600-square-foot garden in London.nbsp; He knows from experience that you dont need a lot of space to have an exuberant garden.nbsp; Big Gardens in Small Spaces provides boundless inspiration and ingeniously practical solutions for taking advantage of every square inch of a small apace--including gardening in shady corners, on rooftops, around doorways, and in the cracks of pavement. His ideas are stunningly simple to follow: squeeze as many plants as you can into your garden by any means possible; grow your own fruit, vegetables, and herbs; seek out rare, unusual and bizarre plants; dont pay for something you can make or do yourself; learn from nature; welcome change, and most of all enjoy the garden.nbsp; The happy result?nbsp; Apparently unusable spaces like to become home to myriad plants.nbsp; Sempervivums and aeoniums nestle in wall crevices, hardy annuals bloom between slabs of pavement, and a grapevine climbs around the back door.nbsp; Carefully chosen larger plants like bananas, bamboos, and trees find themselves entirely at home.nbsp; Cox also recommends fruit trees, herbs, and vegetables. There are many book on small gardens, but they tend to focus on design at the expense of the plants.nbsp; big Gardens in Small Spaces proves this doesnt have to be the case:nbsp; Follow the advice and a amall garden full of healthy, happy plants will be yours.
