Get the best out of any type of garden without spending a fortune, whether it's a small window box or a hard patio, with Deborah Schneebeli-Morrell's brilliant guide to growing crops in pots.
Using containers or pots as a base for your gardening is so versatile.

Growing your own crops is not only rewarding and fun, but you'll be doing your bit for the environment too, as well as being able to ensure that all your crops are produced organically, whilst saving money at the same time. This book is packed with tips and techniques, from companion planting to deter pests, to choosing the right container for the right crop, along with a wealth of other gardening advice. Grow Your Own Food tempts the novice gardener to get growing and the more experienced gardener to grow organically, producing crops that are a pleasure to grow, harvest, and eat.
