This book has already become a mainstay in three households as I can't stop recommending it. When I received my copy, I was impressed at the amount of detail the book provides. So long as you follow their guidelines, you will not fail.

This book is written by Oregon gardeners - one an owner of a highly productive long standing family nursery - so they know what they are talking about. In my humble opinion, this is a great resource for new gardeners in a container or not!

"Staff Pick" by ,

Whether you're looking to expand your traditional garden, gussy up a patio, or put your apartment balcony (however tiny) to work, McGee and Stuckey's The Bountiful Container has all the tools you need to create an edible container garden that is both bountiful and beautiful. Ten out of 10 Powell's employees agree (well, three out of three, but I'm sure if I asked around...) that this is the be-all, end-all resource for edible container gardening.

"Review" by , "McGee and Stuckey's directions are comprehensive, clearly written and frequently inspiring." Publishers Weekly
"Review" by , The book that might inspire even me to grow more than a tomato or two... With this book, a splash of sunlight, a pot and a bag of soil you can be a farmer....The down-to-earth, knowledgeable tone of the book convinces the reader that container gardening is the ideal.... "
"Synopsis" by ,
Clear and easy directions: Vegetables for every season: 21 varieties of beans, including favas and haricots verts; peppers from sweet orange Valencias to fiery Thai Dragons (a scorcher at 60,000 Scoville units); dwarf eggplants; fingerling potatoes; 17 terrific tomatoes; lettuces; and Asian greens like bok choy, mizuna, and Chinese kale. Herbs, including basils green and purple, exotic lemongrass, soothing chamomile, saffron crocus, and the essential culinary herbs such as parsley, rosemary, sage, tarragon, and the many thymes. Fruits: Meyer lemons, strawberries, gooseberries, figs, and even apples, peaches, and grapes. And edible flowers, like tart begonias, pepper nasturtiums, clove-spicy dianthus, and sweet daylilies, to add enchantment to meals.

Complete with all the basics of choosing the right containers, determining soil types, applying fertilizers, and knowing when to start from seed and when to start from seedling.
