About the Author:

Graham Clarke has been a gardening writer and journalist for more than 25 years. He has written a dozen books and countless articles for most of the major UK gardening magazines. He was editor of two gardening magazines and is now a freelance garden writer and consultant. He lives in Dorset.

From Publishers Weekly:

In this beginner's guide, gardener and writer Clarke introduces gardeners to the special considerations and potential charms of the small-scale garden. Color photographs accompany step-by-step advice on basic design, material choices, construction, cultivation practices, and plant selection. The special challenges of gardening on rooftops and balconies and in courtyards and containers are also addressed. Clarke reveals how amateurs can use tools from the professional designer's arsenal--such as color, water features, trompe l'oeil, lighting, and vertical elements--to create interest in gardens of any size. Those interested in growing fruits and vegetables will find advice on the most suitable choices for the small garden. The book also includes an illustrated directory of plants for small spaces; unfortunately, the guide lacks critical information on plants' light and soil requirements. Still, this guidebook provides enough practical tips and inspiring photographs to help the novice create a small garden with immense appeal. Color photos. (Nov.) (c)

Book Description Guild of Master Craftsman, 2010. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. New & dispatched within 1 working day ________ Space is something that all gardeners yearn for, but is a luxury that most city-dwellers don¿t have. This doesn¿t mean that areas of beautiful planting cant be made; it just takes a bit more planning. If all readers have is a shady courtyard, a windy balcony or a sun-baked patio, this book will help them to make the most of what they¿ve got whether it be to create a modern, urban oasis or just to grow some small-space-friendly veggies. It also reveals clever tricks and tips on how to make a space look bigger with vertical planting, optical illusions, using colour, perspective, containers, paving and pathways. Small gardens can be every bit as breathtakingly beautiful as any large plot. In fact, they can be even better. Bookseller Inventory # 000451
