Whether you have a small patio, a roof garden, or a large back garden, containers can be used to great effect in all of these spaces.

Container Gardening details all the aspects of using containers in your planting schemes. This book discusses the types of containers to use in certain settings, how to plan an arrangement of containers kind of garden you have, and the kind of plants to choose that will flourish within a container. There is detailed information on raised beds, trenches, window boxes, and hanging baskets too, enabling the keen gardener to choose from a variety of effects. There is also practical guidance on gardening basics, covering topics such as potting and repotting, how to prune, sowing seed, and taking cuttings.

This book shows how carefully chosen and arranged containers full of interesting plants can become a real focal point. Whether you are a seasoned gardener, or someone starting out with their first packet of seeds, Container Gardening will both inspire you and give you all the information that you need.
