Publisher Comments:

The Container Expert is one of the books in the Expert series written by the world’s best-selling gardening author.

 

Containers are a basic part of the gardening scene, from the windowsills of small apartments to the terraces of millionaire mansions. In this book there are container suggestions for all types of situations - you will find tyres and troughs, hanging baskets and mini-ponds, flower pots and tubs, urns and bowls.

 

The bewildering range of containers is matched by the variety of plants which can be grown - alpines, annuals, trees and shrubs, fruits and vegetables, bulbs and roses … so many types of container, so many different types of plants, how do you choose and how do you produce a great display?

 

That is the job of this book - in the drawings, photographs and no-nonsense Expert-style information you will find all the answers.
