Présentation de l'éditeur

At last, an innovative solution for urbanites, apartment dwellers, and anyone who wants to grow food in small spaces — grow up! 

Vertical Vegetables & Fruit shows how easy and fun small-footprint food gardening can be. Low maintenance and big harvests are just two of the benefits of using teepees, trellises, cages, hanging baskets, wall pockets, stacking pots, and multilevel raised beds to grow vegetables and fruit.
Whether your soon-to-be garden is an alley, a balcony, a rooftop, or just a windowsill, master gardener Rhonda Massingham Hart provides expert advice for constructing the site, preparing the soil, and planting and caring for vegetables and fruits to produce a hearty harvest. From beans on a tepee to tomatoes on a wire archway, melons on a slanted fence to cucumbers on a trellis, kiwis on a clothesline to strawberries in a pot, there are simple growing guidelines here to fit every gardener’s favorite tastes and site. 

For experienced gardeners looking to try new techniques as well as first-time growers with tiny growing spaces, Vertical Vegetables & Fruit is the space-saving, harvest-enhancing guide to producing a bounty of fresh food in any location.

We've lived in our house for 14 years now, and pretty much used the available yard space in our suburban lot backyard up! Where to put new plants, the veg garden, the squash and melons that send out runners and eat the yard? We tried raspberries and ended up tearing them out, blackberries too. If only I had started with Vertical Vegetable and fruit before trying to grow those plants.

This book offers great information on various techniques to grow up instead of out. Ideas for trellises, teepees, fencing, and how to build them makes this book worthwhile on its own, but then the author gives varieties of plants to grow, where to grow them, zone info, how to train them, etc. We are going to try raspberries again, blackberries, grapes (did you know for best grape production don't improve the ground too much with compost or the rich soil will encourage the grapes to grow more leaves and vine instead of fruit? Me either!), melons, and squash, I can't wait! This book makes me and Jim want to go plant something, now!

Vertical Vegatables and Fruit : Creative Gardening Techniques for Growing Up In Small Spaces by Rhonda Massingham Hart is a nice addition to a gardening library for people who are considering growing a lot more of their own food in limited space.

This is best for people who have at least a small yard, however there are some ideas for people who only have a balcony or a sunny window as well.

It starts with good reasons to think vertically for your garden. How it helps plants take advantage of sunlight better to create more food, it cuts down on weeding since your plants have a smaller footprint, and allows a lot more to be planted.

Then the author explains the best materials to use for building supports and trellises, and how to build some popular structures like trellises, cages and teepees. She gives some suggestions for good container plants with minimum depth and spacing suggestions and a chart about how much soils and soil mixes weigh for hanging planters.

The rest of the chapters are on different types of plants. Each plant has planting and seed recommendations. These helped me a lot with planning my garden. I live in a Zone 3 area, which means that my options are pretty limited. Recommendations for varieties include zone hardiness.

My favorite chapters are the one about sweet potatoes which explains how to make your own slips to plant in following years, strawberries, raspberries and espalier trees. I grow strawberries and raspberries already. Using the methods explained in this book will make it easier to really help them grow more abundantly, and get enough extra to pass some on to friends. My family loves sweet potatoes, and making slips and training the plants will be good practice for my son.

The ideas are shown with lovely full color illustrations that are clear and easy to understand.

If you want to make the most of a small growing area to have the joy and thriftiness of growing some of your own food, you may really enjoy this book.
[I received a complimentary copy of the book to review on my craft blog- Don't Eat the Paste. My reviews are always my honest opinion]

I bought this book believing after reading the glowing reviews. It is an absolutely boring book and I haven't learned anything new. Fist it does not contain any photos, which could be inspiring, only drawings. I thought that I will find climbing structures which I hadn't seen before, but there was nothing special. Second, I thought that the part which covers the vegetables explains the best climbing structure for each vegetable (i.e. some plants like to be staked and some like diagonal structures more than horizontal), but it was just a general instruction how to grow beans or squash and some hints of the trellis structure (thanks, I know how to grow beans).
Generally i'm not too much in favour for coffee table books, but this topic really demands for inspiring photography together with some solid how to instruction and some good NEW ideas, but this books just lacks all of it.

This book offered some new thoughts on gardening. Trellis and espalier methods and descriptions on DIY. Some of it is old hat but some of the ideas were new. I think I'll get a lot of use out this book. I like details on how to make stuff and the author didn't assume that that the reader is a master garderner nor was it written like he was talking to an idiot.
