You'll find lush pictures, many helpful tips and great gardening advice when you read this book. I learned about some new varieties of plants to try out, and am inspired to try out some different set-ups. Overall, there's a lot of useful information.

Covers all the basics and more.

Enhanced with beautiful color photographs.

An inspiring book that persuades me that I should do more with containers.
