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.
