Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

If the skyscraper taught city dwellers how to think vertically, Sue Fisher (Gardening for Dummies) is working hard to achieve similar results with gardeners. In her new Vertical Vegetables, her elevated thinking uses multiple strategies; from high-rise rooftop veggie containers gardens to wall climbers and windowsill or balcony growing frames. In addition to vegetables, this paperback original also covers herbs, fruit, and flower. A practical guide for gardeners hungry for new possibilities.

From the Publisher

“This comprehensive guide explains clearly how, with a little ingenuity, we can all share the joy of harvesting our own food, no matter how limited our growing space.”  —Steve Ott, Kitchen Garden magazine

"This book is a fantastic gem of inspiration, colour and practical advice. If you are imagining muddy dungarees and impossible-to-create artistic creations hanging from your balcony, fear not! Sue Fisher has written an easy to follow, practical and inventive book, encouraging everyone to 'grow their own'." —Fiona Corry, Self Build & Improve Your Home
