We’ve not always had the benefit of an allotment or even a garden but we’ve always grown our own. This book tells you what you can achieve and how to do it even if all you have is a balcony.

I won’t pretend you can practically grow everything in tubs, some things just don’t make sense to grow without space. But there is an awful lot you can grow. Not just vegetables either, you can even have an apple tree in a pot (if you pick the right variety)

This simple, straightforward guide, written in plain English with black and white illustrations, is not designed for the coffee table. It’s a manual to help those who really want to provide something for the table by their own efforts but are limited by lack of space.

Reviews & Comments on Vegetable Fruit & Herb Growing in Small Spaces

An invaluable source of information. (Scotland’s Weekly News)

John Harrison is a passionate allotment gardener and really knows what he’s talking about. (Daily Mail)

A good, easy to follow read. (Simply Vegetables)

A good useful book written in a practical and easy to follow format. (Kitchen Garden)

I don’t have an allotment but have always wanted to grow my own fruit, veg and herbs. This book is brilliant to show that you can grow practically anything in almost any type of container – from sinks to hanging baskets, in borders or wrapped around a pergola. What did surprise me was the variety of veg that are happy in containers – things like turnips and leeks or better still my favourite – beetroot. There is a whole chapter on herbs which would be a great help to anybody who likes cooking (never knew before that I could grow my own lemon grass!). It covers pests and diseases as well as tools all written in a simple to understand format.

joyous Amazon Review

I bought three books about container planting and this little book is easily the best. I’ve got v interested in growing veg and herbs in containers, and this book has given me lots of inspirational ideas and tips. Just what I wanted.

JB Amazon Review

The author really does cover the topic in a focused, friendly and accessible way. “Small spaces” are just that rather than a garden not quite big enough for an orchard. He indicates what’s worth growing, what’s not and why. He discusses seeds v plants. There’s a very useful table on how long various seeds last and how long they take to germinate, so you know when it’s time to give up on a planting.
I’d recommend it to experienced gardeners who want a different approach as well as to novices

"Britain's greatest allotment authority"
Emma Townshend in the Independent on Sunday

I think it's just great. Another down to earth book for down to earth people, teaching not preaching how it's done.
Mr R W Braker

Forget about any glossy pictures, what's in this book is solid words of advice, written in plain to understand English from a grower who's had frustrating years of experience behind him in trying to grow nutritious vegetables, whilst at the same time running a business and raising a family.
Medwyn Williams MBE FNVS
Winner of 10 RHS Gold Medals
at Chelsea for vegetables

I've never made jams, chutneys etc. before but can't stop now. This book makes it so easy. Takes all the fear out of jam making.
Mrs S Collett

An informative book based on lots of practical experience and with loads of top tips, as well as a wide range of delicious recipes.
