Bob Purnell says growing CROPS IN POTS has the draw of affordably fresh variety in workable amounts and time. For what makes or breaks container gardening are the start-up choices. That means getting it right on types of pots, planting mixes, mulches, and fertilizers. It also means regular cleaning up and watering. And it means companion planting to bring in pollinators, and beneficial insects such as ladybugs. The book is beautifully arranged, illustrated and indexed. Specifically, Freia Turland's photography is mouth-watering. One of my favorite photos is red-cobbed sweet corn pot-sharing with trailing strawberries. In fact, the author groups plants by whether they're food for starters, main courses, or desserts. Each one of the 50 planting suggestions has a scrumptious recipe. So read the book hungry, because the fullest stomachs will rumble long before the last page.
