With mini meadows, blooming balconies and plant-packed pavements, we’ve unearthed over 25 amazing unconventional green spaces. Meet the friends who developed a living wall inside their L.A. office, the London firefighter who rescued a neglected roof terrace, and the Berlin-based photographer who found a picture-perfect community garden at an abandoned airport. You’ll pick up all the best tips and tricks as each gardener shares their small-scale expertise, from pots on wheels to vertical planters. This book also provides pointers on key aspects of cultivation—from planting suggestions to growth maintenance and the lowdown on which plants will prosper in which place.
