Overview

Incredible Edibles: 43 Fun Things to Grow in the City by Sonia Day

Turn an urban yard or balcony into your personal vegetable farm.

Vegetable gardening is back! Concern about the environment and the desire to eat food unpolluted by chemicals, to buy local and to be thrifty are some of the reasons. Urbanites who have never grown a thing are now eager to try to cultivate vegetables, herbs and fruit in back and front yards, on rooftops and on balconies — in any suitable space they can find.

Incredible Edibles is for anyone who's thinking: "I'd love to try growing some herbs and vegetables. But is it too difficult? Do I have the space? Or the time?" Sonia Day focuses on edible plants that can be easily grown in a city setting, many of which are seldom featured in gardening books. Her clear, concise advice is perfect for those who don't have the time to wade through a gardening encyclopedia or to learn by trial and error.

Incredible Edibles:

  • Provides clear, step-by-step instructions on how to start and maintain an organic edible garden
  • Profiles 43 specially selected "hassle-free" plants
  • Offers simple and tasty recipes
  • Recommends the best varieties for small spaces and suggests alternatives
  • Lists readily available sources for seeds and seedlings
  • Includes practical tips and personal anecdotes from Day's own gardening experiences

    Incredible Edibles is lavishly illustrated with color photographs taken expressly for this book. It will give urban gardeners everywhere the knowledge and confidence to grow and enjoy fresh vegetables, herbs and fruit.
