How to Win at Container Gardening explains how to plant and maintain a wide range of container gardens to provide colour and interest all year round. Packed with colour photographs and practical step-by-steps, it stress the pleasures of gardening, and how to get results quickly.
Place a hanging basket bursting with flowers by the front door or put a newly planted window box on a ledge and an amazing thing happens. The whole area starts to look different; it immediately brighten up, feels warmer and more welcoming. It’s no wonder that hanging baskets, window boxes and other planted containers are so universally popular. No other type of gardening can brighten up even the smallest space, or dullest wall with such success.
Written in a lively, chatty style, by two prominent, popular gardening writers, the book’s down-to-earth and deliberately non-technical approach will appeal to the majority of gardeners.
