It’s about using the right tools, growing techniques, and making space, time, and nature’s forces work for you!

Container gardening allows you to grow what you want, when you want - and in any space you have. You don’t have to depend on where you live to see your plants thrive. And with movable containers, you get to change the location as you wish - may it be on the balcony, in the kitchen, or even midair.

You might have already considered starting a container garden and had to face the struggles of: What container do I choose? How do I use fertilizer? What do scientific terms like nitrogen and potassium have to do with tasty tomatoes?

Lots of Useful Info on Container Gardening

Most of my gardening experience is from large garden plots so this audiobook was a great way to start learning about using containers instead. Had never thought that the colour of your container was important or considered making my own potting soil. Was also interesting to find out you could use Aspirin to control blight. Worth the listen!

Container gardening made really simple

We have a really limited amount of space in our current home for a large garden, which peaked my interest in container gardening (this book really shows you how to have beautiful container grows in small spaces). The pot-soil recipes here are incredibly delicious and it’s so nice to know that your food is truly organic. This is a brilliant and comprehensive guide for beginners to the advanced green-thumb.

Just what I needed to get started!

I have always wanted to have fresh herbs that I grow myself to use in the kitchen but I have been intimidated at the whole process. I don't have a big back yard, or the time to dedicate to a large greenhouse. This book has opened me up to new ideas about how I can have my herbs without all the fuss! I am so excited I came across this book and I highly recommend it to others.

This is the container gardening book you want!

I've listened to a couple of different container gardening books and this is the one you want! This one goes into detail on how to select containers and why, how to hand pollinate your plants, planting combinations that work best and why, how to keep pests away from your garden, when and why to fertilize and what kind of fertilizer for each type of plant, & how to treat plant disease, just to name a few. This is the book that provided me with foundation I have always wanted so I can feel confident now, with my first container garden, and going into the future as I hone my skills. The book is very well organized, written and narrated and I highly recommend for anyone thinking about starting a garden in pots or containers.

Great place to start!

I have a garden in the ground but I’ve been considering adding some pots. But I had no idea where to start. This was an excellent starter guide with a lot of great tips that I will be using! I’ll be buying the paperback version for easy access to those tips!

Plan, Plant, Grow and Eat!

My parents grow baby potatoes, fruit and herbs in their garden and I wanted tohave a go at growing some things for myself. Honestly, before listening to the audiobook, i had no idea where to start. I liked the fact that if you follow all the simple steps in the audiobbok, and look after your container garden properly, the end results should be lots of lovely fresh and healthy produce. The narration was very clear, which was great, as there was lots of important information to understand.

Home gardening made simple

Last spring, I started planting some herbs and vegetables in mason jars. Unfortunately, most of them didn't make it pass summer. After listening to this book, I realized what I might have been doing wrong that hinder my plant growth and at the same time give me new ideas for future planting season.

Very Informative!!!

I loved and enjoyed listening to all the chapters of this audiobook.

It was packed with so much information.

My favorite was Chapter 5 as I have learned so much about planting edibles.

Highly recommend this to all.

Great book!

I've always wanted to grow produce at home but never had the space and I'm not really green fingered either. I now have a bigger garden but want to try and grow some Vegetables in small containers first to see if I can do this, if the plants survive then I'll take on a bigger project.

I found this book to be perfect for what I was looking for. The author covers everything from the type of soil you need, what and when to plant to harvesting and everything in between.
I'm excited to get started and produce some home grown vegetables!

Gardening made easy

I found this book to be an eye-opening reference on what you can do with containers. I've lived in many cramped apartments with little space to grow anything. This book has many excellent suggestions on using everyday containers to grow a variety of plants and vegetables. If you are looking for an alternative form of gardening and don't have a lot of space, get this audiobook now.

You definitely have a new fan!

My fiancé absolutely loves this! I got it as an extra b day present for her and she’s immersed in it. She’s become a bit of a gardening geek but now I fear I’ll never see her during daylight hours! Luckily I love it too so we can do all this together:)

If you’re a newbie like me, looking to grow your own herbs and veggies, then this guide may be just what you’re looking for. Highly recommended listen for novice gardeners.
