And rooftops are the perfect spot for an urban garden! Not only will you love all the fresh food but the building owner will love the reduction in their heating and cooling bills and the fact that the rooftop will need less repairs and maintenance due to the protection from the plants. Grow Vegetables And Fresh Food With An Indoor Garden Even if you only have a window sill to work with or just a small area by a window, you can build or buy a window garden to grow at least 20 food plants like tomatoes, lettuce and kale. You don't need fancy equipment or expensive gear to start an indoor urban garden - just a little bit of creativity and the plans and step by step instructions included in this book.

You can still grow a lot of incredible, fresh food and enjoy your beautiful garden.

This book is for you if you if you have limited space and want to grow plants of various kinds. Urban Gardening is a very useful introduction to growing a variety of plants in limited space. It is filled with great ideas of how you can get greenery sprouting in your limited space.

The book tells you how to plan your site, how to choose your plants including which plants prefer direct sunlight and those that are good at getting carbon dioxide and other toxins out of your space if your space is enclosed. It also tells you what containers to use for each variety of plant.In addition, it has helpful pictures to guide you.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Ideas for Apartment Dwelling DIY Gardeners 1 décembre 2012
Par Timothy W. Knight - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I have lived in an apartment with no direct sunlight for a year now and was just last week lamenting not having a yard for some serious gardening. Reading Will Cook's book inspired me to take action and stop making excuses. Urban Gardening is an introduction to gardening for those with limited space, but it provides a comprehensive look at the important points to consider including site planning, plant choices (this was important to me since I lack direct sunlight), watering and container options. One highlight that I appreciated was the overview of plants that are particularly adept at filtering toxins such as formaldehyde and benzene from the air. This section even included pictures to help with identification. Overall, this book is a good primer for would-be urban gardeners.

My last apartment had a big balcony with a southern exposure - why didn't I have this book then!! But, even though I no longer have that space, I do have a small space to grow veggies - and this book is filled with great ideas of how I can do it - from choosing the right containers to self-waterining containers to choosing the right plants. I love all of the great tips in this book - and highly recommend it to anyone - no matter how green or black a thumb you might have.

As a Master Gardener with 40+ years experience with organic gardening and plant husbandry I was glad the book only cost $3.97.

Parents may want to read this book and make notations in their Kindle regarding the spelling and grammar errors scattered throughout the book before handing it over to their children. Children struggle enough with composition, grammar and spelling to have it reinforced by the slipshod proof reading of a professional author.

In this technological age many have became far too dependent upon "spell checker" to take care of the problem. If the problem is the wrong word being used, yet spelled correctly, spell checker is completely useless. Grammar checker would be handy too for some of those sentences which make little or no sense, but were spelled correctly. Not to mention those various missing words as well.

The book is very thorough and has some great basic advice for urban gardeners and apartment dwellers. These are people who quite often have never planted anything. The author touches on the subject of container gardening but has no mentions of wicking methods for keeping the containers adequately watered at all times. This is most important in a container. Once the soil shrinks and pulls away from the sides of the container "re-swelling" the soil may involve the wasting of water to achieve results. There is a way to avoid this problem altogether. Wicking bed technology or methodology.

Wicking is the most efficient method of watering for containers and the plants are never sitting in water to cause root rot issues. With wicking methodology the soil remains moist below, dry on the surface. Plants are never thirsty and weeds won't germinate in the dry soil at the surface. Outdoor containers do get rain and that is the time to be on the lookout for weed sprouts. If the rare weed does sprout up, it's easily spotted and removed before it gains a foothold. Worms will remain in this type of container during the growing season because conditions are always ideal. Just Google "Wicking Beds".

Anyone with 30+ years of gardening experience won't find much information to help them here. The cover is a little misleading, I expected to find out more about aeroponics and vertical wall gardening methods but there is only a cursory mention in the latter part of the book. Novice gardeners will need some diagrams and photos; otherwise it's like trying to explain the color red to a person who was blind since birth.

It's worth $3.97 in Kindle format but I wouldn't call it a "must have" book for my gardening library.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is exactly what I need 2 décembre 2012
Par Jill Kuri - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I live in an apartment just in the middle of the downtown of my city, between two main avenues so you can imagine the quality of the air over here. I've been worried these days because my mom has a respiratory disease and needs a better air and fresh (chemical free) fruits and vegetables. While reading this book I could find lots of plants that I coundn't imagine we could grow indoors, in a small space like ours, and the best of all, that we could recycle some things to serve as containers.

I love the fact that it doesn't have babbling, just useful stuff in some interesting chapters, going from selecting the place to grow them to all the variety of plants (edible and decorative) and how to take care of them. Great book: fast reading and useful pictures... just what I wanted!
