Container gardening is a great approach to gardening in a small space. It has its own challenges, especially with regards to moisture levels, but it also has many advantages, including fewer pests.
I've recently had the chance to review a great new ebook -Gardening With Little Miss Greenfingers: Growing Culinary Herbs in Containers, by Anja Koch. Anja has a background in landscape design and has been running her own, award-winning garden centre and nursery in Ireland since 1997. She provides advice and insights to gardeners around the world on her website GardeningAdvice.net
In this book, Anja provides a wealth of information on cultivating herbs in containers, both indoors and out. In addition to general information on placement, how to choose the right pot, how to decide whether you should start from seeds or a purchased plant, she gives detailed information on the 17 most commonly cultivated culinary herbs. This detailed info includes watering and feeding guidelines, how to harvest and store, when to add to cooking, etc. The information is presented in simple, straightforward terms and is highly accessible even to the novice gardener. At the same time, the level of detail will benefit even the more advanced green thumb. (I'm certainly learning from it at any rate!)

You can order this ebook to learn about growing culinary herbs from Anja's website. The cost is $14.95 US, and she offers a 100% money-back guarantee if you aren't satisfied. But I think you will be. There is also an Amazon Kindle edition available.
