Container Gardening: Pots, Tubs, Baskets and Window Boxes by Joanna Harrison
Whether you own a huge garden or tiny space, container gardens give you the flexibility to alter your garden design seasonally, and to enhance the look and feel of your home and garden - be it roof terrace, balcony, window-ledge, patio or larger garden. Without much effort, containers can make a modern and stylish statement on your patio, a versatile vegetable and herb patch by your kitchen door, or provide instant maturity to a young garden and fresh colours to a tired one. Almost all plants will grow in pots - so even if your soil is impoverished or polluted, or you have no soil at all, with this book anyone can create a garden to delight all the senses. With a focus on organic container gardening, this is a complete guide to designing and sustaining a container garden while respecting the environment and encouraging beneficial insects and butterflies to join in with your project.
