The Postage Stamp Vegetable Garden


Growing Tons of Vegetables in Tiny Spaces and Containers

A large, abundant vegetable garden is a common dream, but it’s not practical or possible for many of us. This gardening bestseller, first published 40 years ago, presents a more attainable goal: the development of organic gardens that fit into small plots, which require minimal maintenance yet still yield abundant produce.

Newly revised and updated for a new generation of gardeners, the book explores the innovative techniques that it first introduced such closely planted beds (instead of traditional rows), growing vines and trailing plants vertically to maximize space, and intercropping for efficient use of land. New information includes an overview of today’s heirloom vegetables and how to grow them in small spaces.

Whether you have a tiny balcony, a small backyard, or just a postage stamp-sized patch of earth, this book provides practical guidance and sound principles for maximizing your vegetable harvest.
