Description

Sonia Day is the recipient of Landcsape Ontario's Gardening Communicator of the Year Award (2003) and her book Tulips won a Garden Globe Award of Achievement for writing (2003), from the Garden Writers Association of America. Growing plants on balconies?and rooftops, terraces, decks and patios?has become the hottest gardening trend as cities across North America experience tremendous growth in the building of condos and other small living spaces. Aimed squarely at this gardening crowd, The Urban Gardener is packed with incredible detail: dos and don?ts, tips on what plants and tools are best, potting instructions, hints that will save you money and tips from real small space gardeners. Every unique aspect of urban gardening is addressed. You?ll learn: - how to get started when the soil for your garden has to be hauled up in elevators - what will work on cold, windy balconies, damp courtyards, backsides of townhouses - where to buy plants when you don?t have a car - how to create a quick and colourful instant garden - mixing in herbs and vegetables - growing up?vines that climb - how to help your oasis survive when winter comes. If you long to create your own natural sanctuary amidst urban smog and concrete, The Urban Gardener is the book you need to guide you on your way.(March 2003)
