Urban Gardening PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Urban Gardening free pdf Living in a crowded city need not mean uprooting one's connection with the earth. City gardens are proliferating at a healthy rate, and plants can be enjoyed on a rooftop, balcony, terrace or a simple window sill. There are, of course, special difficulties to gardening in cities: how to deal with typhoons, how to produce organic pest control sprays, how to turn garden waste into compost, how to use kitchenwares as tools and containers...After all, how it is possible to connect with Mother Earth in even the most restricted spaces? With this book, help is at hand for anyone who wants to know how to grow things in an urban setting. Established gardeners and rank beginners alike will find something helpful among these pages, which are sprinkled with anecdotes, recipes, photographs, illustrations and grass-roots philosophy. Non-gardeners will also enjoy this celebration of nature and ecology in words and pictures. Where so many of the available glossy books are dominated by sweeping lawns and massed tropical plantings, this book takes us back to the more familiar home garden in its many guises.

About Arthur van Langenberg

About the Author Arthur van Langenberg, author of Urban Gardening in Hong Kong (1983), has been trying to grow things for as long as he can remember. Many years on, he is still trying though not always succeeding. Born and living in Hong Kong, he now spends nearly all his spare time amongst his plants, six cats, one dog and two friendly scarecrows who help look after them all. The author was the gardening correspondent in the late 1980s for the now defunct Asia Magazine, which was distributed as a weekend supplement to many national newspapers in Asia. He is a surgeon by profession.
