    Successful Container Gardening

    After searching for quite some time for a book on container gardening this book seems to have everything you need to begin using pots and other means to grow without having much planting area. So many people don't have a large garden area this provides the how-to's to have vegetables, flowers, herbs growing in a variety of interesting ways. The illustrations are helpful and give a good amount of ideas for different growing environments. This is a book that can be used for many years to have as a reference for mixing it up for adding lovely planters, pots, etc to your patio, deck and yard area.
