From an internationally famous writer on horticulture comes the bible on cultivating small gardens. It provides a master class on design, hard landscaping, choosing essential plants, growing fruits and vegetables, combating pests and diseases, and solving common problems caused by space limitations. Work with a new garden or transform an existing one; plant with a “garden theme”; and use the illustrated directory to choose the best trees, shrubs, and flowers to create your own miniature Eden.
