Our indoor environments are ideal for human comfort, but they are not always hospitable to plants, especially vegetables and other edibles. In just the last few years, the technology for creating a better indoor plant environment has expanded. With the new, compact systems and tools available, it has become simple for anyone to grow an indoor kitchen garden and enjoy freshly picked edibles grown right on your own countertop.
Countertop Gardens shows you how to set up a cordial growing environment anywhere. In addition to going over the pros and cons of a wide range of ready-made hydroponic, aquaponic, and vertical gardening systems, Shelley shows you how to make your own DIY setups—from simple space-saving container designs to more creative and complex soil-free solutions. Beautiful photographs throughout illustrate methods, growing options, and creative projects. The chapters cover:
- Countertop garden methods
- Best edibles for countertop gardens
- DIY countertop gardening
- Growing basics
- Countertop growing devices
