Description - Balcony by Helen Young

The smaller the garden, the better it has to look. While apartment dwelling has grown in popularity in recent years, for the garden lover creating an outdoor space is still important. However it can present special challenges. How can you enjoy the pleasures of a garden using containers? What plants grow best under what conditions? How do you create an outdoor area that complements your lifestyle and is easy to manage? How does a non-gardener go about selecting the right plants for their situation? Whether you have a balcony, terrace, townhouse or villa garden, BALCONY: GARDENING IN SMALL SPACES provides practical solutions to these questions and many more. The secret is in the planning - the more thought you give to selecting the right colours, materials, accessories and plants to make the most of that precious outdoor space, the more pleasurable the final results will be. By applying Helen Young's simple but useful ideas, everyone - whether green thumb or novice - can find refuge in their balcony or small garden.

Author Biography - Helen Young

Helen Young is a qualified horticulturist, running her own landscaping business in Sydney and specialising in garden consultations, plant selection, design and soft landscaping services. She is also a regular presenter on 702 ABC Radio's Saturday morning gardening talkback show. As a freelance garden writer she writes for several garden and homemaker magazines, and has co-authored a book on form and foliage plants. In addition Helen writes a weekly column for The Weekend Australian that has included a series entitled 'Balcony: tips for apartment dwellers'. The popularity of these convinced Helen that there was a need for a book on balcony gardening. English-born photographer Chris L. Jones came to Australia in 1987 after living and working as a photographer in London for 10 years. While he has a broad range of experience in corporate and advertising photography, he now focuses on lifestyle assignments which include food, people and gardens. Currently he contributes photography to several food, gardening and lifestyle magazines. Chris lives in the New South Wales Blue Mountains with his wife and two daughters.
