From the cover: Gardening is a pastime that is relaxing, rewarding and money-saving. In towns and cities it can be a great challenge, too: space may be limited, gardens might face north or be overshadowed by high walls and the soil, perhaps, be very poor. The possibilities, though, are as various as the challenges, and in The Town Gardeners Companion Felicity Bryan draws together all her expertise and enthusiasm to suggest how to make the most of them.
A north-facing roof garden might seem a bleak prospect but can be transformed with silvery-leaved shade-loving shrubs. Why not grow vegetables in a window box if space is limited and you want to fill the garden with climbing roses? Or trail vines up a sunny back wall and fill your yard with sweet-smelling herbs? Whether you have an allotment or patio, a roof garden or window box, whether you want to grow prize-winning flowers or simply create a lovely spot to lounge in on a summer evening, you will find this book a mine of ideas and information.
With a small garden, ingenious planning is vital in order to maintain a year-round succession of flowers and foliage. Accordingly, The Town Gardeners Companion is divided into twelve sections, one for each month, which deal with all the seasonal jobs to be tackled and follow the progression of the gardening year.
