Overview

Transform the smallest of outdoor spaces into a display of flowers and foliage. Whether you have a windowledge or balcony, roof garden or patio, or even just a few steps leading to your door, horticultural expert Gay Search provides all the practical know-how and inspiration you need. Whatever your location, space, climate, or exposure, this book presents a container of plants to fit it. There are ideas for spectacular seasonal displays, as well as low-maintenance designs that will look good all year round. Clear instructions, step-by-step photographs, and lists of "ingredients" explain how to create and care for the displays. Beautiful photographs of the plantings, plus suggestions for alternative plants, enable you to change the designs to suit yourself. An illustrated plant index gives essential information about all the plants - their habit, seasons of interest, and special needs - so you will know what plant to use where. Even if you think you can't have a garden - you can have a garden!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Unlike similar titles (e.g., Malcolm Hillier's Container Gardening Through the Year, LJ 3/15/95), Search's new book on the popular topic of container gardening integrates planting designs with site recommendations. Search, a British horticulturist with 15 years' experience, groups her descriptions of container plantings in chapters devoted to alternative gardening spaces, such as walls, stairs, and entrances. Search's designs are well illustrated with color photographs and scale diagrams, and detailed maintenance information is also given. In a laudable departure from many popular U.S. horticultural books, which are not ethnically diverse, Search shows a person of African ancestry preparing a container. Though she could have provided more thorough horticultural advice for U.S. gardeners -- for instance, she indicates the USDA and Canadian hardiness zones for most but not all plants listed -- Search has produced a useful book for general readers. Brian Lym, Strybing Arboretum Society, San Francisco
