Add some greenery to your life! This book will show you how to use overlooked pots to their full potential and transform your garden―whether you've only got a modest balcony, a small square of patio or just a windowsill. Container Gardener's Handbook covers a range of different planting schemes and types of container, from urns and troughs to chimney stacks and hanging baskets.
