Raised beds, planters, and containers offer easy, convenient, and affordable ways to garden. For urbanites who have no accessible garden space, townhouse residents with tiny lots, the physically challenged, and the busy individual who doesn't have the time or energy to invest in the preparations, planting, and maintenance of a conventional garden, a container garden offers a wide range of pleasures and possibilities. Stunning full-color photographs and plenty of practical guidance will help you achieve exactly the results you want. Handy charts assist you in deciding what to plant, with descriptions of each specimen and information on when it should be planted. Choose from flowering and foliage plants, herbs, bulbs, corms, rhizomes and tubers, berries and fruit, planters, shrubs, and trees. Cultivate plants you never dreamed you could by tailoring the soil in pots to their specific needs. Bring outdoor delights inside. Grow fresh ingredients steps away from your kitchen. With a variety of spectacular design ideas, including window boxes and suspended gardens, the only thing you won't be able to contain is your enjoyment!
