I own just about every gardening book amazon sells, Most books are good for a few Ideas and that's fine
but this book goes into great detail on vertical gardening with some very thorough explanations for vegetables and flowers and many different ways to go about it.
He also gives an honest interpretation of heirlooms and hybrids seeds, I love heirlooms but hybrids get an unnecessary bad rap these days from misinformation.
the author clears that up nicely, he also mentions some varieties that have worked very well for him(Always appreciated)That along with a new Compost tea recipe that I've never seen anywhere else and won't have you going nuts trying to find the ingredients as well as Some very Good and NEW info makes this an easy 5 stars, I'll be changing existing beds and putting up new vertical Beds from the info provided in this book.
I grew my first garden this past summer at my new residence, but the garden space wasn't enough for what I have plans to grow. My hubby said we can't make a bigger plot, so I am thrilled while reading this book, realizing that many of my space problems can be easily solved with a little effort and cost. Cost depends on our choices of the materials that we use and I intend to grow bamboo for many of my structures. The author explains various types of bamboo that he likes for best appearance.
Other added benefits are the saving of water while growing a lot more of whatever you want to grow, less work of weeding, no more back breaking work picking green beans and such low to the ground, easier pest control, better flavor of produce...and so much more.
You can grow in an 8 square foot vertical space what you would normally grow in a 24 square foot horizontal space. My husband says that food taste better when vertical growing and Derek Fell explains that the plants contain more Chlorophyll, which improves the taste of the plants. He also shares how to grow tomatoes on top of the ground and potatoes directly underneath in the tomato root system.
This book contains information of how to use various items to build your structures to grow up and not out, which plants produce an abundance supply, and tidbits of wisdom from years of experience and experimentation are sprinkled throughout.
My mother gave me an advertisment that she received concerning this book and I am so glad that she did! It's going to prove invaluable to me!
