Urban gardeners face some special challenges, the biggest of which is lack of space. These 25 gardening books cover all the bases to build the beginner urban gardener’s confidence. I’ve assembled a collection that covers general gardening knowledge, companion planting, composting, small space gardening, and so much more.
Also, I couldn’t resist adding a few just for my Canadian readers. When you’re done, check out my list of 25 best gardening books for prairie gardeners, or anyone in USDA hardiness zones 2 or 3.
