Overview

Just as stylish accessories bring a room to life, gorgeous planted containers are the finishing touch for every garden home. With this book, America’s favorite gardener, P. Allen Smith, shows how to create a beautiful container garden in a matter of minutes, in an innovative recipe-style format complete with ingredients lists, step-by-step planting instructions, and advice on how to effectively display these colorful accents.

Beautiful and versatile, these container designs are the perfect solution for decks, porches, balconies, and gardens that need a focal point or a splash of color. Each container recipe fulfills one of the 12 Principles of Design that Allen established in his first bestselling book, P. Allen Smith’s Garden Home. As a result, the container will wonderfully frame the view from a window, offer a welcoming reception in an entryway, help to establish a sense of rhythm along a walkway, or extend your home’s color and décor into the garden. Allen shares the secrets he uses to make his eye-catching arrangements, as well as special planting and display tips for placement in your garden. The designs range from sophisticated to casual, yet the instructions are so easy to follow that you can assemble these containers in no time at all—even with little or no gardening experience. There are recipes for every season of the year, to ensure that you can enjoy lush container gardens year-round.

A special resource section includes a complete plant directory, tips on how to select the right container to complement your garden’s style, grooming and plant-care guidelines, and basic instructions for planting pots, window boxes, and hanging baskets. Lavishly illustrated with more than 150 photographs, this book is sure to inspire seasoned gardeners as well as beginners interested in enhancing the beauty of their Garden Home with P. Allen Smith’s signature container designs.

    The Best!

    I purchased this book for my brother who is a lifelong horticulturalist (as a hobby). He told me this is absolutely one of the top gardening books he has ever read. He is already ordering the supplies to follow Mr. Smith's instructions.

    Restful Recipes

    The recipe format is a fun twist on presenting helpful instruction for container gardening. Exquisite photography throughout is inspiring, soothing and very well organized, plus the text is friendly and encouraging. I love this book, it's well worth the investment.

    Container Gardens

    We have a large population of deer around our house - container gardening is perfect for us - we put the containers on our back deck and the deer leave our flowers alone - they don't like the deck! Lucky for us - Olympia, WA

    Easy to follow design recipes and very helpful tips

    Beautiful design recipes for containers. Includes comprehensive helpful information on soil mixes, container selection and container care (how to clean that white build-up on terra cotta containers), which containers are water-proof and/or frost proof. A must have if you are into container gardening.
