Gardening on a mini scale for condo dwellers.

It’s a little gem of a book for small space planting. I especially liked the Herb Garden. Planting seeds of oregano, thyme, sage, cilantro, chive, tarragon, and parsley all in one box to have on your kitchen window, sounds like heaven to me. Or what about a Detox Box? Snake plants were shown in a NASA Clean Air Study to remove many toxins from their surroundings. Or the Edible Petals. Plants like nasturtium, alyssum, rose-scented geraniums, and pansies will add both color to your windowsill and an added “pop” to your appetizers or salads.
