Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Displaying plants beautifully doesn't take money--just imagination! For example, did you ever think how lovely petunias would look in colorful, old-fashioned olive oil tins? Or, how attractive sedges--with their long and elegant lines--could be in the simplest, most unadorned clay pots? And, that's only the start, because every gorgeous page here blooms with brilliant ideas for combining and designing groups of flowers and containers, as well as for plant care. You'll see examples of pots on walls, in borders, laid out in rows, stacked on shelves, arranged informally or to produce a dramatic effect. All portable, versatile, and low maintenance, they provide the garden with visual excitement. Make an improvised pot from vine prunings, intertwined and lined with moss. Fill glassware with intriguing, contrasting layers of sand, chippings, pebbles, and foliage. Go "beyond the pail" by planting a willow and jasmine in a zinc bucket. Every luxuriant, colorful, and fantastic project will delight and inspire you!

Synopsis:

"A simple glass jar or a wicker basket may not look inviting at a yard sale but when you add plants, decorative magic can happen. There's an abundance of ideas for combining groups of flowers with colorful containers....Included is a directory for the care and cultivation of over 150 of the best container plants."--"Container Gardens.
