Product description

Whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced gardener seeking inspiration, this title should give you all the ideas and techniques to create your own sensational containers. Container gardening is one of the most effective ways of introducing colour and foliage to small spaces and adding interest to larger ones. This title contains planting schemes and ideas for growing plants in containers. Jasmine in a zinc bucket, grasses in transparent vases and cottage garden plants in a wicker basket are among the inspirational projects presented in this book. There are also planting suggestions for traditional flowerpots, windowboxes and hanging baskets. While acknowledging the importance of traditional container plants, the author also urges experimentation with more unusual ones, such as bamboos and succulents, to create interesting effects with shape and texture as well as colour. In advising on what to plant and where, and how to take care of your planting schemes, this book should give the gardener the confidence to match plants with containers and place them to best effect.
