Overview

With a patio, porch, or windowsill, gardeners can grow almost anything anywhere using containers. Arrangements in this guide begin simply, with one type of plant in a decorative container. The projects move on to combinations of two plants, then on to more complex pots involving three or more plants—some of the arrangements are even meant to go from container to garden plot. Design principles including color, texture, height, and depth are considered, and ideas for themed containers are included for holidays and other festive occasions. Species range from the tried-and-true garden varieties, such as impatiens and petunias, to newer plants on the market, such as a striking red ornamental millet. The planter plans include detailed photographs, diagrams, and instructions on getting the very best results from container gardening, for lasting natural beauty in any space.
