You can grow just about every vegetable, herb and fruit without a traditional garden plot. This book tells you how to raise them in containers and other small places almost anywhere and enjoy the same benefits a big garden yields. About the authors: George 'Doc' and Katy Abraham, famous for the 'Green Thumb' column in 135 U.S. and Canadian Newspapers, were named American's Number 12 garden writers in 1973 by the Men's Garden Club of America.'
