From the Inside Flap:

A charming introduction to container gardening.

The author has cultivated a tiny but functional vegetable garden on the roof terrace of her Chelsea home. Making use of every inch of available space, her windowsills and floors are crammed with pots while her window boxes are filled with fruit, salads, vegetables and flowers. In this delightful book Penelope Bennett shares a year in the life of her extraordinary garden while giving practical advice on how to plant and maintain your own container garden -- no matter how small.
