Gloria Daniels has done an superb job with this "Growing Flowers in Containers" book. I've tried in the past, without any guidance, to grow flowers in my small apartment space - I wasted a lot of time, energy, and money with little (actually nothing) to show for my efforts. You just can't go wrong with Gloria's step-by-step guidance - nothing is left to chance - even down to the color of the containers. She even provides a free "Edible Flower Guide" so you can harvest your work and brighten up your meals. What a fantastic bonus. Highly recommended!
I first discovered this author when I got her book on Growing Bulbs in Containers: http://www..com/Growing-Bulbs-Containers-Weekend-Gardener-ebook/dp/B00IT4RB9W . I absolutely loved that book, so was also really excited about getting this book on flowers in containers. I was not disappointed in the least.Once again, this book provides reliable, practical advice, dotted with gorgeous, inspiring photos. I particularly loved the section on composition. I think all too often gardening books overlook the importance of actually designing the composition of potted plants. Gloria made this really easy by talking about various options and how to achieve these effects.Having said that, there was another section I loved even more. In fact, I’m now excited about my next project, which has been inspired by this book: my very own container rock garden! I have absolutely no idea why I’ve never thought of this before, but now I’m armed with all the information I need to go ahead and make it happen.I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in gardening. Complete newbies and seasoned gardeners alike are both bound to find something fantastic in this book. I know I will also be on the lookout for any other books released by this author as well.
I have been reading some of the other Growing in Containers books by Gloria Daniels and I ran across this one. After reading her other books I knew this was a low risk purchase.This book is one that really interests me because of all the things you can do with the many types of flowers available.The book starts with a short introduction and then gets right to it starting with choosing containers then choosing the right potting soil and moves on to types of flowers containers and much more. Everything that I can imagine you need to be successful is here. I am looking forward to starting my flowering containers, inside (I live in Minnesota), and transferring them outside for the summer months. I will use this book at a guide to make sure I am taking advantage of the things you can do with flowering containers.If you are considering growing flowers in containers I highly recommend this book.
This book will be an invaluable resource when I set up our large water garden in the front yard. We had to leave our last one behind (a large clay pot) when we recently moved and I have the perfect space to put another one at our new home. This book even gives information on fish you can have in your water garden, along with photos! It also has lots of photos of all the plants, so you aren't just taking a list to the nursery, you'll be able to recognise and name them when you see them. Information is also provided on what to do with the plants over winter. I'd recommend this book if you are wanting to set up a water container garden, and I recommend that you set one up anyway - the flowers are gorgeous and they can attract local fauna such as cute frogs
Make your home bloom with color. Ms. Daniels gives you the information of how to grow a rainbow of flowers in containers. She starts with helping you pick the right containers. You will learn which potting soil to buy. All dirt is not the same. Discover her secrets of how to buy and create interesting containers to make your container garden unique. Your space is not important. You may have a small apartment balcony or a large back yard you can easily make it explode with color. You can tell I am excited with her ideas, I ready to get started.
I have always admired the eccentric container gardens that I see throughout my neighborhood and often wondered how homeowners knew what to put together to make them look so good. After reading this book, I have a good understanding of what it takes and think that I can make my own. The author did a fantastic job of going through every detail of container gardening from beginning to end, making it simple for even the novice to have incredible blooms on their porch or patio.
This is the most handy book I have on container gardening. It has so many things you can try. So many containers that you already have on hand you don't have to run out and buy. I love it. I did myself a mixed container of flowers I had one on hand a old wooden container. Lots of things I must try yet . Things and ways so different.
More than just potted flowers, this books teaches you how to create living floral art! You've seen the beautiful companion plantings at the nursery that cost an arm and a leg, well now you can put your green thumb to work and have them at a fraction of the cost, I loved the tip about how to grow moss on your new terra cotta pots to make them look aged in only a month. Brilliant!
