Publisher Description

Fabian Capomolla and Mat Pember run a successful business installing edible gardens: in polystyrene boxes on balconies, in crates you can put anywhere in your backyard, or by creating no-dig, raised garden beds. After years of helping clients set up spaces to grow their own fruit and vegetables they believe anyone can create their own little edible garden, in most any area. And in this easy-to-use guide they show you how simple it is! Fundamentals such as Soil, Climate, Watering, Composting, Worm Farms, Saving and Sowing Seeds, and Raised Garden Beds and Crates are all discussed comprehensively - each with a fully illustrated step-by-step activity to help you create your own little veggie patch.

Author Biography

Growing up in an Italian family, for Fabian Capomolla, Sunday lunch would always consist of loud arguments, pasta and veggies from the garden. Starting off in advertising before taking the leap to fulfil his dream of helping people grow food, Fabian now has his own completely edible backyard in Melbourne, with his wife and kids. All Mat Pember's childhood memories revolve around his Nonna and Nonno's backyard near Fremantle, WA. The veggie garden, the enormous garage, where the pork and fennel sausage would hang drying from the ceiling beams, and checking the chook shed for eggs. Mat worked in landscaping before moving exclusively into edible gardening.

Product Reviews

17 Jan, 2019
Excellent book but some missing things of interest to me. Nothing about finger-limes or guavas (I live in Canberra, but I am growing them! With difficulty! Under cover for frost protection.
Nothing about shield bugs aka stink bugs whichinvade my citrus trees and drain the sap from the young fruit or even the flower buds. I will write to the authors about my very successful control mechanism.
Overall, a great book and value fo money, but nothing can be perfect.
