Crops in Pots: 50 Cool Containers Planted with Fruit, Vegetables and Herbs

Author(s): Bob Purnell


There are few things more rewarding than picking your own homegrown ingredients for a salad, pasta dish or stew. The flavour of freshly harvested produce is far superior to anything you can buy in the supermarket. What's more, you have the satisfaction knowing that it was your own handiwork, and you're able to control whether or not to use chemicals. You don't need a huge amount of space in order to get a worthwhile crop. A wide range of edible plants can be grown successfully in containers and many are just as much a delight to the eye as to the tastebuds. This book has 50 great ideas for growing fruit and vegetables in containers. Your hanging baskets, window boxes and pots will be colourful, beautiful to look at and produce plentiful crops.
