Creating beautiful container gardens is an increasingly popular and easy way to garden. Sue takes the reader though a progression of 200 container gardens—from simple one-item pots all the way to large containers featuring a wide variety of plants. Not content to use only traditional bedding plants, Sue incorporates new vegetative annuals, perennials, tropical plants, and even some evergreens. She discusses design principles such as color, texture, height, depth, and plant needs for light and nutrients. She also suggests ideas for holidays and festive occasions, as well as pots for early spring and fall decorating. Each container design features a plant list, planting diagram, and color photo.

This book opened my eyes to new creative ideas for my patio containers. It's absolutely fantastic with great photos and the plant-a-grams make it a breeze.
