Full of real gardens and the stories of their owners. Includes layout diagrams with plant selections. Perfect for the person who wants to know exactly what the finished garden will look like.

"Growers in search of fresh ideas will find plenty to chew on in this colorful tour of food gardens cultivated by a variety of horticultural heavy hitters. With 73 gardens shown (and DIY plans included for each), there's something for everyone: rooftop and balcony gardens, historically accurate vintage gardens, gardens to attract wildlife or accommodate microlivestock (e.g. bees and chickens), and even quirky themed spaces (such as a hot-dog-shaped garden that yields condiments for a classic Chicago-style dog). No matter what sort of garden you've got in mind, Groundbreaking Food Gardens provides "an abundance of creative advice" (Booklist)."
