Flowerpots offers a unique approach to gardening. As both a potter and a gardener, author Jim Keeling combines practical horticultural skills with a visual appreciation—not only of the plants but of the pots themselves. Featuring 200 gorgeous color photographs.

Weaving together the art of pot-making with the process of planting design, Flowerpots shows you how to take container gardening to a new level. Seasonally arranged, the book looks at the initial planning stages of autumn and the structural beauty of plantings in winter, before bringing to life the new growth of the spring and summer months. There’s also plenty of practical advice on topics such as pruning, feeding, and selecting containers. Using his own beautiful English cottage-style gardens to illustrate, Jim Keeling shows how to make the most not only of planting displays but of the pots themselves.
