"excellent book for an often forgotten horticultural contingent: urban dwellers with only wee strips of dirt to work with ... a lively, optimistic guide to transforming dead space into a small splash of Eden, a win-win for everybody." -- Publishers Weekly
“A creative and environmentally friendly gardening book, Hellstrip Gardening is a fine choice for both dreamers and doers. Hadden has ideas not only for that awkward (and presumably hellish) space between person and street, but also for medians, parking lot islands, community gardens—anyplace there is land to plant.” —Shelf Awareness
