Whether your idea of a garden is a small city window ledge or a lush country garden, a well-planted container will add beauty and variety to any outdoor space.
The Complete Container Garden brings together in one volume all the practical advice you need for success with this versatile form of gardening. A host of inspiring ideas, plant suggestions, planting plans, evocative photographs, and a highly accessible text demonstrate the many ways in which planted containers can create or embellish a garden. Used singly or grouped together, planted pots, tubs, window boxes, and hanging baskets can transform a patio or deck, beautify stairs or a doorway, or bring life and color to a roof, balcony, or window-sill where nothing else will grow.
