Excellent! As with an great recipe book, Smith tells you exactly what you will need from dish (pot) to ingredients (plants). Towards the end of the book is a section called "The Well-Appointed Potting Shed", which is very informative and provides lots of great tips and tricks.

Great ideas for container gardens by the seasons. It tells you how so set up some to switch from one season to the next without taking it all apart. Beautiful pictures and good illustrations.
Awesome book if you are renting, have a lot of concrete, or just trying to add some flair to your garden. I love container gardens and this book has given me great ideas for next spring!

Not very helpful for me. The most informative part was the chart that compared and contrasted different types of pots.

Good inspiration if you're looking to dress up your porch, deck or garden.
I would like Smith to come do all the containers on my porch please!
