Garden Anywhere

Garden Anywhere is an apartment-dwelling wannabe-horticulturalist's dream. With easy-to-follow instructions and super-creative container garden ideas — like making window boxes out of wine crates and growing potatoes in feed sacks — this book is perfect for the DIY urban homesteader.

Have a small patch of soil? Or just a window box? Not a problem. Garden Anywhere shows how anyone can create an oasis in the smallest of spaces. We're not talking just a simple pot of marigolds, here. Garden Anywhere outlines everything an aspiring gardener needs to know to sow a bounteous, thriving garden.

Alys Fowler, trained at the New York Botanical Garden, guides readers through the process from the ground up — from planning the garden to composting, pruning, harvesting, and propagating. Stylish photos illustrate the how-tos while Alys shares tips on creating gorgeous container gardens, herb gardens, kitchen gardens and more, without spending a fortune. Currently, Alys is the head gardener at Berryfields, the location for BBC's Gardener's World and resides in the United Kingdom.

With its beautiful photography and Alys Fowler's fashion, this is one gardening book to get your hands on. Fowler writes in a conversational, accessible way that had me torn between finishing the book in one sitting or putting it down to pick up a shovel.

I've never been as interested in a gardening book as I was in this one...and I've owned several.
