This is a series of tabletop gardens, with inspiration, instructions, and plant variety suggestions for each project.

But I'm not worried. No book on flower arranging is going to sneak in.

Read through Chapter 1, The Basics and then breezed through the rest of the book. The rest of the book are different container garden plans. I will definitely borrow the book again when I feel like I have more time to play with gardening.
