Fabian Capomolla and Mat Pember are The Little Veggie Patch Co., an incredibly busy Melbourne-based business that specialises in helping people grow their own food no matter how much space they have.

Together, they have taken the mystery out of – and put the fun back into – growing fruit and vegetables. No matter how much or how little space you have, this book will help you grow your own food in no time.

Whatโ€™s inside it?

Containing 70 skills you need for growing food in small spaces, this book has all the information a beginner gardener needs to start planting, take care of a garden and harvest your own homegrown produce.

There are some great tips on how to create and prep your garden space before you get started; even if you don’t have a lot of space at home. You could have a garden vege patch, a planter box, a number of pots, or a hanging wall garden and still find great advice in these pages.

From tasks as simple as planting seeds and spacing plants, to more complex gardening jobs like hand-pollination and pruning fruit trees, 1-Minute Gardener is a handy encyclopaedia packed with bite-sized tips that will help turn you into a pro gardener.

This book also covers off other useful skills including dehydrating vegetables, fending off pests and ‘theming’ your vegetable patch.
