Small-Space Vegetable Gardens: Growing Great Edibles in Containers, Raised Beds, and Small Plots

By Andrea Bellamy

If I could recommend one book for small-space vegetable gardening, this would be it. Andrea Bellamy nailed it!

Joe Lamp'l, host of PBS' Growing a Greener World

Vegetable gardening is happening everywhere—at home, in community gardens, and even at the White House. But you can grow vegetables anywhere, including balconies, porches, walls, or wherever you find room.

Small-Space Vegetable Gardens explains how to grow a bounty of delicious edibles in a minimal amount of space. Andrea Bellamy, author of the award-winning blog Heavy Petal, shares all the knowledge she’s gained from years of gardening small: how to assess a space, how to plan and build a garden, and how and when to harvest. Bellamy also highlights the top edible plants for small spaces and offers complete information on how to sow, grow, and harvest them.

This hardworking and enthusiastic guide teaches gardeners how to take advantage of the space they have to create the food garden of their dreams.
