A revised, expanded and illustration edition of Penelope Bennett's popular guide to growing fruit, vegetables and herbs in a tiny space.

In a space that measures only 5 x 2.5m (16 x 8 ft), outside her kitchen window, high up on a London rooftop, Penelope Bennett cultivates a garden that includes artichokes, beans, peas, tomatoes, peppers, alpine strawberries, raspberries, herbs (and saffron), 31 kinds of potato and six different fruit trees. With Window-box Allotment as your guide you can make your outdoor space, however tiny, equally prolific. And as you learn how to do it you will be endlessly entertained.

'Those who feel you need green fingers to grow vegetables should read Penelope Bennett's inspirational book.' Patti Barron, Evening Standard

'Penelope Bennett is a true urban gardener and an inspiration to anyone with the tiniest of roof terraces or balconies.' Elspeth Thompson, Sunday Telegraph

'Totally original but never fey, thoroughly practical and great fun . . . for beginners and old hands alike. Demystifies and encourages.' Jane Gardam

'Written in a charming, individual, humorous voice.' Sybille Bedford
