Hanging baskets and window boxes are firm favourites with every gardener. It doesn’t even matter if you don’t have a garden – baskets and window boxes can add cheer to any boring wall or window, even in the heart of a city.
Collins Easy Hanging Baskets and Window Boxes shows how to really get the best results from your baskets and boxes and also looks at the new popular wall containers now on the market – flower pouches, towers and Babyllon bowls.
Collins Easy Hanging Baskets and Window Boxes explains how to plant and maintain a range of hanging baskets and window boxes that will provide colour and interest throughout the year. Packed with colour photographs and practical step-by-steps, its emphasis is on the rewards and pleasures of gardening, and how to get impressive results quickly and easily. 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.
