What’s Inside?

If you’re a beginner gardener looking to jump-start your knowledge have a lot more success in the garden, you’ll love Field Guide to Urban Gardening.

In a stark contrast to many gardening books, you won’t find a lot of specific information on growing a particular plant.

Instead, I took the approach of explaining the why behind growing plants, giving you foundational knowledge to build your garden upon.

I also give you a plethora of growing options to fit to your unique living situation.

The book is divided into three main sections…

Green Thumb Basics

The basics of plant care. The resources plants need to grow, making soil mixes, site selection, etc. This section teaches you the foundations of being a good gardener.

Growing Methods

Six different gardening methods for you to choose from, based on your unique living space. From raised beds to hydroponics, each section has multiple plans for gardens you can try at home.

Growing Problems

How to deal with the most common pests, diseases, and avoid the classic mistakes most gardeners make.

The Best Part?

I am extending the entire book in digital format. When you buy a copy of Field Guide to Urban Gardening, you’ll get access to a library of in-depth videos and articles to accompany the plans in the book.

This way, the book is truly alive and forever updated for you.
