Stairs, passages, light wells, the tops of fire escapes - no site is too small for a garden, or the illusion of one. This book shows you how you can create a pocket handkerchief of a garden in even the most unpromising of spaces. Equally helpful for beginners and more experienced gardeners faced with an awkward plot, this book covers everything you need to know to make and maintain a tiny garden, showing you how to make the most of what you've got and suggesting designs for a variety of situations. You need not be restricted to a selection of containers: even things you thought beyond your wildest dreams - lawns, water features and kitchen gardens - are all surprisingly achievable. It fills a genuine gap in the market and covers the areas around a house that are frequently ignored, even in books specializing in small gardens.
