With small spaces, lack of privacy, and limited greenery, being a city-dweller can be tough. Luckily, Fern Richardson, the award-winning writer and gardener, is here to help with a fun-filled guide to transforming a balcony, patio, or rooftop into a gorgeous garden oasis. Starting with the basics, including light requirements, this book will show you how to choose the best potting soil, the proper way to pot, and when and how to water. But the bulk of the book features inspiring and easy-to-follow design ideas that can be recreated by gardeners of any level of experience with varying amounts of space.
