Embrace your space by Janet Luke

I’m a huge Janet Luke fan and always look forward to her books and Embrace your space doesn’t disappoint. Janet Luke’s new book is as amazing as her other two books; Green urban living and Backyard bounty.
The book is divided into two parts the first part is all about using your space; if you live in the middle of the city in an apartment or have a windowsill, patio, courtyard, balcony, blank wall or a flat rooftop to mention a few spaces. The second half of the book is a how to guide, what to grow where, growing mushrooms, aquaponics and hydroponics, sprouts plus a great chapter on livestock with lots of information on keeping quails (I’m hoping to pick mine up this weekend), rabbits and bees among other great chapters.

Since reading this book I’m looking at my garden in a whole different light; I’ve learnt how to espalier, grow tomatoes upside down, grow a garden in a bottle (great Christmas gift watch this space), I still want to make a guttering garden and want to make one for the chooks too. I love all the green boxes that have what plants/ trees to grow where; plants suited for vertical gardening, window box plants, shady tolerant plants, seaside plants, plants for a balcony, screening plants to mention a few. Also the top tip boxes are fantastic as well; watering tips, sunflower screen, lining timber boxes, installing pully systems among others.

This book is a must if you have no space, a little space or lots of space and what to utilize every ounce of space you have. You can buy a signed copy for $45 and receive a free packet of bee banquet seeds to encourage bees into your space. Or you can buy Janet’s three books for $90 signed, sealed and delivered.
