Get the most out of every bit of balcony space to easily grow your own sustainable, organic, and tasty food.

Do you love having a balcony but aren't sure how you can use it as a space to grow? Do you feel that being a few stories up in a building stops you from growing delicious crops? If the answer is "yes," then it's time you read this book.

Patrick Vernuccio is a small-space grower with a big message-and even bigger Instagram following. Building on Patrick's popular 60-second reels, Tomatoes and Basil on the 5th Floor will showcase easy and informative ways to grow fresh produce in containers and on a balcony.

From dividing store-bought basil plants, to harvesting vegetables at the best time of year, to letting plants set seed for the benefit of wildlife, Patrick takes his readers through myriad ways to get crops and produce out of very limited space. Working with the seasons and with good-quality seed and compost, he explains all you need to know to ensure every inch of your balcony can give you tasty and beautiful crops to harvest.
Patrick Vernuccio, known as "The Frenchie Gardener" on Instagram and as @thefrenchiegardener TikTok, is an urban gardener who has transformed his 18-square-meter balcony into a green jungle, growing organic seasonal vegetables and fruits in pots and containers. He aims to inspire people to embrace an urban regenerative lifestyle. He was 36 years old when he planted his first seed, and now he is convincing his hundreds of thousands of followers to do the same and reconnect with nature. He writes for gardening magazines, teaches an online gardening class, and has undertaken a certified permaculture design course.
