Not impressed. I'm moving into the city and would like to learn more about gardening in small spaces. This book taught me that, yes, I can plant small things into small containers and that if I want a real garden I will have to find a bit more space. If you already know this, don't buy based on the title. Its good points are its charm, full-color pages and photographs. The latter are also a bad point. There isn't much actual content. I didn't learn anything new, and as a beginner gardener I find this to be rather sad. It's a nice book to look at, and even a nice read(I enjoy her writing,) but not good for learning. Her most helpful hints are dumpster diving/re-purposing, and how to pick out plants at the store. She also talks more than I would like about natural garden design. Which I won't have room for.
There are hundreds and hundreds of gardening books out there. There are hundreds and hundreds of strategies for every aspect of gardening from sowing seeds to composting. But, Alys' Garden Anywhere is by far one of my favorites.
The style is practical, hands-on, money conscious, and simple: from her advice to head to the grocery store for seeds and starting material to worm bin construction instructions. The guidance is specific, brief, and shouldn't be overwhelming to a new gardener and while I've gardened for a while I still love her book. Chuck full of pretty pictures too!
I highly recommend this book as it covers so much material in less than 200 pages without missing beat thus providing an excellent foundation in gardening.
I enjoyed this book so much, I read it in one day. I would say it's more helpful for people in apartments with at least a small amount of yard to work with, so those without may not find this as helpful as I did. I love that she's all about being creative with the ways you can make your garden. I can't wait until spring to get started on mine - this is helping me so much to prepare.
