Grow up! If you have limited outdoor space and would like to grow your food, this invaluable guide will help you transform previously plant-free zones into thriving, beneficial, and utterly beautiful food-growing areas. Using special containers, you can grow a wide range of edible crops—and grab a salad for lunch without getting your feet wet. The book covers using a wide variety of containers and details how to make them; making the most of wall boxes and hanging baskets; creating edible roof gardens; planning and growing crops on green roofs, including on sheds; and a directory of plants suitable for vertical growing.


“This comprehensive guide explains clearly how, with a little ingenuity, we can all share the joy of harvesting our own food, no matter how limited our growing space.”  —Steve Ott, Kitchen Garden magazine

"This book is a fantastic gem of inspiration, colour and practical advice. If you are imagining muddy dungarees and impossible-to-create artistic creations hanging from your balcony, fear not! Sue Fisher has written an easy to follow, practical and inventive book, encouraging everyone to 'grow their own'." —Fiona Corry, Self Build & Improve Your Home
