    Book details

Stairs, passages, light wells, the tops of fire escapes – no site is too small for a garden, or the illusion of one. This book shows you how you can create a pocket handkerchief of a garden in even the most unpromising of spaces. Equally helpful for beginners and more experienced gardeners faced with an awkward plot, this book covers everything you need to know to make and maintain a tiny garden, showing you how to make the most of what you've got and suggesting designs for a variety of situations. You need not be restricted to a selection of containers: even things you thought beyond your wildest dreams – lawns, water features and kitchen gardens – are all surprisingly achievable. It fills a genuine gap in the market and covers the areas around a house that are frequently ignored, even in books specializing in small gardens.

... combines sound advice and suggestions - for various, often minute situations such as roofs and light wells - with very beautiful pictures that will inspire even those with no more 'garden' than a few steps outside. (House & Garden)An upbeat and comprehensive book which should convince gardeners that even the dingiest concrete passageway can be transformed into something green and lush. (Scotsman)Should provide plenty of inspiration, especially from the images, for anyone who just acquired their first potential gardening space. (Gardens Illustrated)McMorland Hunter is the champion of the really titchy in all matters horticultural. (Independent on Sunday)An exciting kaleidoscope of design solutions and everything you need to know about planning, maintaining the smallest garden spaces, this book is great at recommending plants to fit your own particular site. (North magazine)For the owners of many small spaces…a book like this would be both inspirational and useful, with nicely photographed sections dealing with passages, balconies, steps, walls and so on. (Compass)Jane McMorland Hunter tackles the subject honestly and comes up with a portfolio of ideas and illustrations that are truly ingenious. There are throughout, practical instructions on planting amd maintaining your tiny gardens making this book very good value for money. (Museum of Garden History magazine)

    I've been looking for "small-garden" books for some time, but the authors' idea of "small" varies widely and wildly [I saw one newspaper story that called a 140x40 garden "small" - what do they call normal, something the size of Epping Forest?] So I thought a "tiny garden" book would at last be in the size-range that I need - my new "garden" is under two metres "long".The book covers all aspects of gardening in tiny spaces - except back gardens - it does patios, front gardens, light wells, side alleys and dead spaces, and more that I can't remember - but no back gardens. [Maybe "small back garden" is considered an oxymoron] I should be able to adapt some of the ideas for other areas, but it would have been nice had the contingency also been allowed for.But still glad I got it, it should give me some ideas for what to do with my abundant outdoor space.

    A delightful book. Very well set out and visually pleasing. It has a useful list of plants for what goes where. This book will definitely have a permanent place in my horticultural library even though some of the photographs I have seen before in other design books, but then again I do read an awful lot of them! Highly recommended.
