Publisher's Description

This comprehensive guide has everything you need to know to successfully design and maintain an urban garden in whatever space and conditions you have available. As Katherine Powis writes in the foreword, "City gardeners are up against it: the concrete and grit, the lack of light, the cramped spaces, and sun-scorched, wind-burned rooftops. And that's just what this book is about." Linda Yang gives you the information and guidance you need to create beautiful gardens and outdoor spaces, profiling dozens of beautiful, hardy plants that thrive in cities and offering expert advice on everything from preparing your soil to managing pests. Filled with charming anecdotes and stunning photographs, The City Gardener’s Handbook will inspire you to bring the joys of the garden into your metropolis. 

Author Bio

Linda Yang is known for her garden columns in the New York Times, which were widely syndicated from 1979-1995. Both her articles and her photographs have been published in numerous home and garden magazines, and she is the author of three books other than The City Gardener's Handbook. Her friendly, wise, and authoritative writing comes from a genuine love of gardening and from firsthand experiences that include "quite a bit of trial and more than one error." At present she tills one-fortieth of an acre of Manhattan, the area around the townhouse she shares with her husband.

Jane G. Pepper is president of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society.
