This book is brimming with marvelous design, from the containers themselves to the lovely colors and layouts of each page.The plant palette pages are beautiful and include photographs and descriptions of each plant and alternate suggestions.The book has a great deal of practical information as well as creative container ideas, two of my favorites are 'A Mini Meadow' and 'Living Perfume'.With 42 inspiring combinations to choose from, you are sure to find several (if not all!) that are suitable for your location and garden style.
I thought there would be more information about mixing colors using flowers. I did not find the combinations that interesting or any I would want to use. I was looking more for use of flowers (annuals) for that pop of color always needed on porches, window boxes, patios, etc.However, it does give good points as to where to use the perennials, explanation of each plant used and close up picture, what size container was used to achieve the look; gives dimensions.If you looking for guidance on Plant ( not Flower) containers, this is your book.
I didn't find the pictures of the container gardens very appealing. Maybe they are just not my cup of tea. The book lists the specific plants used, but also gives suggestions for alternate plants, which is good because it is difficult to find exact varieties. However, I found the book not worth keeping.
Nice ideas and how to. Create small container gardens for desk top, porch or balcony. Suggested by color of orange, purple or other by use like tea or even night gardens. Year round tips and tricks. Nice touches and ideas.
I thought this book had some very good ideas about how to garden using containers. The idea of planting plants due to color combinations was very useful, hopefully next spring I can use some of these ideas when I go to plant.Thank You to Nancy J. Ondra for giving me some good gardening tips that I hope to put in use!I received this book from the Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.
This is an easy to follow book that is full of ideas that are easy to follow and implement in your garden. Definitely picked up some ideas in this book to use this year!
Some good ideas but many suggested plants not readily available. Suggested planting mostly for larger pots.
