Small Plot, Big Harvest is a bright new gardening book for people with little space but big ambitions. Forget waiting for years for a spot in a community garden: This book celebrates what the vast majority of people have-a little bit of patio or garden that is nonetheless precious to them. Rather than bemoan this limited growing space, this book actively embraces it and explores the advantages, leaving readers in no doubt of the potential their garden has to offer.

Enticing seasonal crop planners for 10x10 foot (3x3 meter) and 6.5x6.5 foot (2x2 meter) plots, and for planters and mini raised beds, demonstrate the possibilities. The artworks of each crop are drawn to scale to show the correct number of plants in three planting schemes: a standard mix, an easy-to-grow selection, or a gourmet selection of fruit and vegetables.

Follow-on charts show substitutes to increase choice and variety, making this the easiest of garden design packages for new gardeners. Key topics such as soil preparation, watering, feeding, sowing, transplanting, and extending the seasons are presented in the opening chapter, ensuring the book covers every aspect of growing your own.

The bulk of the book is made up of attractive profiles of 60 vegetables and 15 fruits, delivered with step-by-step photographs showing each stage of growth and clear instructions. These are followed by gallery spreads to help gardeners choose the best varieties to grow from seed or source as plants.

The Problem Solver is a useful troubleshooting section to help gardeners nip problems in the bud, with a clear directory of common weeds, pests, and diseases. Useful resources and a glossary of terms complete the guide.
