Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Using containers or pots as a base for your gardening is so versatile - try making an eye-catching design feature by growing herbs in a zinc bucket, growing spring bulbs in a pretty olive oil can on your patio or growing a complete salad in some old tyres. Growing your own containers is both rewarding and fun. This book is packed with Christine's tips and techniques, from planting to deter pests to choosing the right container for the right crop, along with handy advice on feeding and watering, knowing when to harvest and treating common diseases. All the projects included are perfect for beginners and provide inspiration for the more experienced gardener; there are even ideas to turn little fingers green.
