Container Gardening: How to Plant Fresh Organic Vegetables in Pots, Tubs, and Other Containers. Grow a Thriving Garden Even if You Live in (Hardcover)
Are you interested in Gardening but you don't have enough space in your backyard?
Well, keep reading because this book will help you with your problem...
One of the most appealing characteristics of container gardens is the low physical labor involved. For these condensed gardens, weeding is a lost art. There's no turning of the soil or extreme heavy lifting required. In containers, plants are protected and have fewer diseases. Organic container gardening is an activity everyone, no matter their age can enjoy.
Practically any veggie, herb, or fruit that can be grown in the ground can be grown in a container, and some plants produce better when contained.
Growing food organically in containers is not tricky, and container gardening is perfect for limited spaces, balconies, decks, cement patios, and other small areas.
A fantastic amount of food can be grown in containers filled with organic planting mix, watered consistently, and placed in a location with at least six hours of sun. City dwellers can grow a window box of herbs, salad greens in hanging baskets, strawberries in planter railings, peas on trellises in planter boxes, or a container garden of veggies on the roof.
The containers used can be conservative or so creative: the garden feels like a wonderland

Container gardening and agriculture are a growing trend in recent years. Farmers and scientists work together to identify productive systems that sustain the health of soils, ecosystems and people without using poisons. More and more, we are striving to be kinder to the planet and our bodies by not using toxic chemical fertilizers or herbicides in the soil or spraying pesticides on the food.
As home gardeners with limited space, we want to grow our plants in a chemically-free manner, using natural predators to control pests, earthworms to aerate the soil, ladybugs to feed on aphids and compost to enrich the soil.
Organic soil that is alive with microorganisms grows and produces so delicious and nutritious that everyone can appreciate the results
The benefits of organic food include, but are not limited to, the increase of essential vitamins and nutrients that the body uses in defense against cancer and other diseases, along with the revivification of immune systems damaged by the intake of harmful chemicals and artificial growth hormones. Organic gardeners and their families save money on food bills and doctor visits.
