A favorite cookbook author, Amy Pennington has written an incredibly handy manual full of information on how to grow plants in small spaces. The book is full of wonderful tips, recipes and information on all the best things to grow in your home.
So you think you can’t garden because you live in a small apartment? Nonsense. The author has ideas for gathering supplies, growing herbs, edible blossoms, home pickling, planting, growing lettuce, seed starting and tons of recipes—all of which can be achieved in the smallest of flats. She even has a chapter devoted to making your own organic beauty products.
Amy Pennington, author of Apartment Gardening, is our windowsill guru. This spring, we're sowing what she's sowing. (Named one of Bon Appétit's 2012 Tastemakers: "the visionaries who are making our lives so delicious.")
In the book “Apartment Gardening: Plants, Projects and Recipes for Growing Food in Your Urban Home” (Sasquatch Books, 2011, $18.95), Amy Pennington offers useful information for those who live in apartments, have a small parcel of land, or a deck large enough to accommodate big pots and window-box planters.
The Washington Post
In both her latest book, 'Apartment Gardening,' and 'City Dirt,' the biweekly column she recently started writing for the website Food52, Ms. Pennington shares her know-how with metropolitan types everywhere. She applies the same principles of wasting nothing and maximizing space to home cooking. Visit her streamlined one-bedroom apartment, and you'll see her template for sustainable living and perfectly stocked cupboards.
The Wall Street Journal
The ever-resourceful Pennington chronicles her food-centric take on city living in "Apartment Gardening: Plants, Projects, and Recipes for Growing Food in Your Urban Home"... As adept as Pennington is at figuring out how to grow the most food in the smallest space in the shortest amount of time, she's equally skilled at suggesting what to do with it. She details not only how to plant directly into a sack of soil and build your own deck-sized worm bin but also how to blend thyme lip balm and whip up a killer chocolate lavender tart. The book's tone is chatty and encouraging...
The Seattle Times
Amy's straightforward conversational style makes both books [Apartment Gardening and her first book, Urban Pantry] seem as if you're getting great advice from a smart, savvy friend.
This book arrived on my desk a few months ago, and it's been a real joy to read and reference. It's full of great tips, recipes, and DIY guides, like how to build your own planter box, grow lettuce in recycled containers, keep bees on your patio, and infuse spirits with herbs grown right in your kitchen. Cute illustrations, too!

So here are the cons:
Illustrations of the more complicated ideas would have been helpful. e.g., worming migration in the bin. Almost half the book was recipes. Needed more gardening. Concentrated on Terrace and Patio gardening not specifically apartment gardening. Geared towards the northwest. Author's wording didn't seem to corresponding to current gardening vernacular, i.e. full sun versus shade which I believe she meant direct light vs. indirect, no mention of zones, etc. I think it is a mistake to leave out some of the more common herbs, e.g., Rosemary: mentioned as a perennial but then nothing about growing it. Same with basil and sage. Even a note saying the following herbs cab be treated the same way would have been helpful, e.g. Sage and basil can be treated the same as lemon verbena as far as watering, etc.( this is not true just a fictitious example)
I thought the recipes were very helpful. It was a great idea to demonstrate the produce in actual recipes.
A good introduction to worming.( enough to know that it will probably be too overwhelming for me to attempt)Some very handy tips on fertilizer, composting, a pretty detailed plan for getting started(although this could not have been detailed enough for me), sustaining your garden, etc. She helped bridge some important gaps from outside and inside gardening that other books have glossed over.
All in all a lot of helpful information geared to producing. But, as I said I needed apartment gardening so 3 stars for a very good perspective of pertinent side subject; terrace gardening.
Amy has written this book in a very to the point manner. It is not an encyclopedia. It is not written for a Master Gardener. It is written for folks like me who somehow got tumbleweeded into the condo city life who long for their own little patch of green. The hardest part is planning a small garden, I think. Her book will give you PLENTY of ideas without overwhelming you. Once you have planned, planted, watered and patiently waited now comes the best part...eating!
The latter half of the book is recipes and ideas for your balcony bounty. Amy's recipes are simple and amazing. Her first book Urban Pantry got me hooked on her style of cooking. Her recipes are unique, easy, economical and super tasty.
Because of Amy Pennington I don't feel like I need to wait to move to the country for my dream garden. My balcony is 8 feet by 4 feet. I am growing squash, violetta beans, dill, sage, borage, German chamomile, french zucchini, black krim tomatoes, lemon balm, strawberries, two kinds of lettuces, and a rose geranium. I also have a little worm farm out there too.
If you are a tumbleweed in the city like me, please don't wait any longer. In my opinion, buy both books from Amy: Apartment Garden and Urban Pantry. Break all the rules and start living your best city life.
As an avid indoor, actual apartment gardener, I can say many of our issues are unique and quite different - for example the coolest months indoors tend to spring and autumn, when there is no heat or air conditioning on, the warmest months are winter, when sun is most scarce but the heat is blasting (apartments are generally significantly warmer then private houses due to the communal living and the higher floors). Space planning - such as utilizing vertical space - is a significant issue as well when one is limited to windows as a natural light source, and also in finding places to do messy things like potting (soil, in a carpeted home can be an issue!) These types of typical apartment gardening issues are not covered in this book, as the author assumes one can do their potting outdoors just steps from their living space, and will be utilizing the outdoor weather, not indoor climate control.
If you have outdoor space however, and especially if you are in the Pacific Northwest (as this book focus' almost exclusively on the PNW climate), this book is a handy resource. If you are a north-easterner without a terrace though, don't bother.
