I love Fine Gardening magazine and the mags they devote to container gardening. This book was medicore for me.

I do love container gardening, but this book won't hel to fuel one of my passions.

This book really hit the spot for me - it's full of bite-sized advice and pretty photos. If you are searching for a reference book, look elsewhere.
