The Container Expert is one of the books in the Expert series written by the world's best-selling gardening author.

Containers are a basic part of the gardening scene, from the windowsills of small apartments to the terraces of millionaire mansions. In this book there are container suggestions for all types of situations - you will find tyres and troughs, hanging baskets and mini-ponds, flower pots and tubs, urns and bowls.

The bewildering range of containers is matched by the variety of plants which can be grown - alpines, annuals, trees and shrubs, fruits and vegetables, bulbs and roses ... so many types of container, so many different types of plants, how do you choose and how do you produce a great display?

That is the job of this book - in the drawings, photographs and no-nonsense Expert-style information you will find all the answers.

Review:

Even for someone who is rather proud of their arrangement of hanging baskets and tubs, this book is a great read. As with all Dr Hessayon's books the illustrations and clear instructions are what first appeal, but in this case the real bonus is the enormous fund of ideas it offers, all in coloured photographs. From car tyres to wooden troughs--if you can grow a plant in it, it's in here! A huge variety of containers are suggested for all kinds of situations, from a flat with no garden to a mansion with terraces. Full information for planting is given for flowering bulbs, annuals, perennials and trees, shrubs and bonsai, photographed in an ambitious variety of containers and locations. In addition to the ornamental garden there is a great section of container-grown fruit, vegetables and herbs--particularly valuable for the gardener cook with a limited space.

All in all this is a delightful and handy book which really inspires you to make container growing a feature of every garden and available space, 12 months of the year. An excellent quick reference title for your bookshelf and one appropriate and appealing to gardeners of all standards. --T W Falinska
