Collins Easy Container Gardening explains how to plant and maintain a wide range of container gardens to provide colour and interest all year round. It features great ideas for all types of container, including pots, window boxes, hanging baskets and the less conventional...Place a large terracotta pot or a hanging basket bursting with flowers by your front door and an amazing thing happens. The whole area starts to look different; it immediately brightens up, feels warmer and more welcoming. It's no wonder that container gardening is so popular. Regardless of your gardening space, soil, time and budget, Collins Easy Container Gardening has interesting, easy planting ideas to suit you. 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.

Richard Jackson presents Meridian TV's 'Grass Roots'. He also writes for all the leading gardening magazines and has a weekly column in the News of the World. Carolyn Hutchinson writes for many magazines, including Garden Answers and Candis.From Library Journal:
These British books offer spectacular photographs showing delightful, creative arrangements of plants in a variety of containers. Donaldson (Plants for Small Spaces) suggests colors, container types, and plants to create ten different gardens, from Mediterranean to woodland to American country. Each chapter includes illustrated, easy-to-follow instructions for making containers like Proven?al painted pots or fernwork pots. Each chapter also profiles a group of plants suitable for growing in containers, e.g., miniature bulbs, scented plants, and ferns. More an idea book than a cultural how-to, this unique book stresses evoking specific moods. Writing for the beginner, gardeners Jackson and Hutchinson explain how to grow plants in containers, hanging baskets, and window boxes, offering more cultural information than Donaldson. Sprinkled throughout are photos of planted containers specifying the numbers and types of plants necessary to create each look. The authors end with "Top Plants," their recommendations of plants that grow well in containers. Written for a different climate than much of North America, these books contain little information on how to overwinter tender plants or grow bulbs. Gardening in Containers (Ortho, 1997) and Bill Marken's Container Gardening for Dummies (IDG, 1998) would be good choices for Northern or beginning container gardeners. However, these two titles are recommended for all gardeners looking for fresh ideas for their container gardens.ASue O'Brien, Downers Grove P.L., IL
