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: special solutions are needed to solve these problems. Urban Gardening was written to address these issues. It will interest first-timers to try it for themselves, too.The book is subtitled a Hong Kong gardeners journal. If you live outside of Hong Kong, do not let that put you off. Urban gardening techniques are the same all over the world. Readers may discover some well-loved plants they were familiar with back home, or wish to grow their own Chinese vegetables. Pak choi, white radish (lo pak), kai lan, and many others can be grown wherever in the world you find yourself -- if you know how. This book will help.
