The Vertical Veg Guide to Container Gardening

How to grow an abundance of herbs, vegetables and fruits in small spaces


VerticalVeg_cover (1)

Rooted in my own practical experience as well as conversations with hundreds of urban container gardeners, the book is a comprehensive guide to urban container gardening, including: 

  • Eight steps to container growing success.
  • A guide to the best herbs, fruit and veg for containers. 
  • Key growing skills for small spaces.
  • How to grow more food in a small space.
  • How to make your own fertiliser and potting mix. 
  • How to succeed in challenging urban spaces. 
  • How growing in small spaces can contribute to wellbeing, nature and our communities.

“Engaging and ….. packed to the brim with advice. … [It’s] authenticity made it very accessible to the reader. The judges have yet to see a more comprehensive guide on this subject.”

  • Unbelievably detailed and easy to access.....I also love the sections which discuss the positive impact of gardening on mental health, community cohesion and being more green.
