Join popular media personality and foodie Indira Naidoo as she embarks on a mission to transform her tiny thirteen-floor balcony into a bountiful kitchen garden. She soon establishes a productive urban oasis that takes just ten minutes a day to maintain, yet provides her with an ever-changing selection of fresh fruit, herbs and vegetables.

Featuring 60 delicious recipes showcasing her home-grown produce, plus plenty of practical advice, The Edible Balcony charts a year in the life of Indira's balcony garden and gives a season-by-season account of the triumphs and challenges she faces. This warm and engaging book will inspire even the most reluctant green thumbs to channel their inner gardeners and reconnect with nature, while also saving money and reducing their carbon footprint.

        Comments about The Edible Balcony:

        Good basic info. But, particularly because this book is written for balconies and small spaces, I would have liked a bit more information on different types of containers and what size dimensions to use for different types of veggies. As well info on self watering pots and troughs for those with busy lock up and go lives/lifestyles.

            Good book to educate the novice gardener on starting small, understand the seasons and planting companionship. She covers some herbs, fruit and vegetables to grow along with delicious recipes, desserts and drinks to make along with it.

              A great read for seasoned or novice gardeners.
              An easy to read book full of helpful information, tips and recipes.
              I first bought this book as a gift for my son, I liked it so much I ordered a copy for myself.
              Cannot fault this book.
