Matt James, 'the city gardener', shares his planting tips in this approachable, practical guide to making the most of a small, urban garden. Now available in paperback.

Garden designer, lecturer and broadcaster Matt explores how to design an urban outdoor space, no matter the size or location - from balconies and roof terraces to courtyards, basement areas and front gardens, factoring in areas for relaxation, play and growing your own produce. There are 16 step-by-step projects including creating a 'living' green wall, planting under mature trees and making a gravel garden and 13 case studies showing great design in action, with examples from Tom Stuart-Smith, Charlotte Rowe and Christopher Bradley-Hole. Award-winning photographer Marianne Majerus provides the visual inspiration.
