The Vegetable Gardener’s Container Bible
By growing vegetables in containers, even novice gardeners can reap a bounty of organic food in very small spaces. Anyone can harvest tomatoes on a patio, produce a pumpkin in a planter, or grow broccoli on a balcony — it’s easy! Bestselling author Ed Smith shows you how to choose the right plants, select containers and tools, care for plants throughout the growing season, control pests without chemicals, and much more. He even includes plans for small-space container gardens that are perfect for urban and suburban gardeners.

Praise for the First Edition:
“In every small town, there is a vegetable garden that people go out of the way to walk past. Smith is the guy who grew that garden.” — Verlyn Klinkenborg, The New York Times Book Review
“An abundance of photographs . . . visually bolster the techniques described, while frequent subheads, sidebars, and information-packed photo captions make the layout user-friendly . . . [Smith’s] book is thorough and infused with practical wisdom and a dry Vermont humor that should endear him to readers.” — Publishers Weekly
“Smith . . . clearly explains everything novice and experienced gardeners need to know to grow vegetables and herbs. . . . ”
