30 tried and tested container recipes and 60 fruit, veg, salads, herbs and edible flowers covered. What's more irresistible than the taste of the freshest possible fruit and vegetables direct from soil to your plate (via a sink!) in minutes, with no carbon footprint. From a very simple medley of mint, a floral barrel, a herbal bath tub, create the taste of Italy with basil and oregano, save on herbs by growing quick and easy coriander and lemon grass. Oriental leaves like arugula with its punchy and peppery taste spices up salads; sow your salad box for all season long cut and grow leaves of many colours of lettuce like little gem and red salad bowl. Beans and sweetcorn, sunflowers, spinach, rhubarb, onions, radishes, parsnips, beetroots, bags of potatoes, climbing cucumbers, sweet and chilli peppers, cherry tomato baskets, grapes on the vine, blackcurrants and 'super fruits', irresistible blueberries, raspberries, gooseberries, cherries, pears, figs and apples galore. All about slug and snail controls using beer traps or nematodes, tools and techniques and harvesting. Every fruit, vegetable and herb could be grown in a container if you have only a small space and here is the perfect pot for each crop, coupled with the recommended varieties, tricks for getting the tastiest and best looking crops and ideas for barrels, planters, baskets, boxes and bags and identifying and solving problems.
