By growing vegetables in containers, even novice gardeners can reap a bounty of organic food in very small spaces. Anyone can harvest tomatoes on a patio, produce a pumpkin in a planter, or grow broccoli on a balcony — it's easy! Ed Smith shows you how to choose the right plants, select containers and tools, care for plants throughout the growing season, control pests without chemicals, and much more. He even includes plans for small-space container gardens that are perfect for urban and suburban gardeners.

I love this book! I live in a condo with only a concrete patio so I am limited to container gardening. This book was a great guide for plant types and spacings for various pot sizes. It is quite similar to the self-watering container gardening book by the same author, but I have found both to be useful. This is my third year using this book while setting up my garden and the advice has paid off!
