Overview

Rebecca Cole - once an actress/activist and now the owner of the trend-setting Greenwich Village store Potted Gardens - introduces a whole new way to garden. Using any container - from the bed of a toy truck to a bedpan - and any kind of plant - from rose to weed - would-be gardeners can follow Rebecca's guidance and plant a bit of beauty in a corner of their homes or gardens. Starting at the beginning - what a garden means to urban dwellers and their country cousins and how to stimulate your own imagination - she then helps us hunt (or plants at neighborhood nurseries and markets (which she advocates over catalogue shopping); gather containers from dumps, attics, flea markets, and antiques stores; and put it all together in potted gardens for windowsill, desk, and patio. In a chapter on terraces, she turns to the great outdoors, explaining the design and creation of complete gardens made up of containers, artfully arranged to make the most of small spaces. And all along the way she shares her own experiences with breaking all the rules to achieve ebullient flowering displays. With nearly 200 spectacular photographs, illustrated step-by-step instructions on how to plant in wooden boxes, metal containers, and how to plant bulbs; tips on maintaining a finished potted garden; suggestions on further reading; and a glossary - Potted Gardens is the everyday companion for the new and experienced container gardener alike.

A revolutionary new voice in gardening shows how anyone, regardless of experience and previous success, can create beautiful and unusual gardens using any plants and any containers. 300 color photos. 192 pp.

    Too much Rebecca Cole, not enough plants!

    A pretty coffee table book with lots of personal antecdotes from Rebecca Cole, but very few exciting plant combos. Funky ideas for displaying a few plants, but there's nothing exceptional about marigolds in a dump truck or petunias in a rowboat.
