Overview

The unlimited possibilities of container gardening: Each issue of Container Gardening proves once again that there is no end to the creative ways containers can be used to beautify the landscape � whether it�s as small as a porch or as large as a park. There�s no end to the variety of plants that can be grown � flowers, foliage, edibles, even small trees and shrubs. And no end to the containers you can use � rustic barrels, handmade pots, antique urns, or "found" art.

Modular landscapes to table-top vignettes and everything in between: Container Gardening is bursting with inspiring ideas you can follow to the letter or use as a springboard for your own creations.

� Grow a season�s worth of vegetables in a large vintage wagon that�s intensely planted for maximum yield and offers all the advantages of a garden on wheels!
� Pots of all sizes planted with lush greenery or colorful flowers can do wonders in the landscape � use them to edge a patio, fill in a border, soften a hardscape, or mask an eyesore.
� Smaller planted containers can be grouped to create a still life on an outdoor table or deck and rearranged for a fresh new look. The options are endless.

Container gardening on the cheap: If you�re watching your pennies, and who isn�t, you�ll find dozens of fresh ideas for low-cost or no-cost containers and the plants to fill them. Salvaged and recycled containers � wooden boxes, enamel basins, and wine barrels � can become exciting mini-gardens, eye-catching accents you won�t find anywhere else. Learn which plants you need only buy once. Cuttings, divisions of perennials, self-sowers, and excess from the garden are all economical ways to fill containers. You�ll be amazed at the beauty and bounty these inexpensive plants bring to every corner of your yard.

Creative ideas galore: Container Gardening will bring out the artist in you and make your garden more beautiful than ever.
