Groundbreaking Food Gardens by Niki Jabbour

Groundbreaking Food Gardens

Groundbreaking Food Gardens: 73 Plans That Will Change the Way You Grow Your Garden is a great book. Niki Jabbour did not actually write the book, but has compiled some great garden plans from horticulturist and professional gardeners. The book isn’t a step by step book on how to grow plants, but gives amazing design plans for a wide variety of gardens. There are gardens for everyone, if you live in an apartment or have a large yard, or if you want an informal garden or a very formal one. Here are some examples I will call “small and cheap” – “Hanging Gutter Garden” – uses cheap or recycled gutters and it is a vertical garden taking up very little space. With this garden you can grow salad crops, strawberries, herbs, etc. Also there is a “Grocery Garden” – with this garden you regrow seeds, roots, and shoots, using things you have bought at the grocery store. On the large side, you have the “Front-Yard Suburban Farm”, and there is also a “Beat The Grocery Bill ” garden. This is also a large garden with fruit trees. There are many different gardens in this book, it has a very nice variety list with each garden,
