Gardeners love container plantings for the wonderful flexibility they provide. Without much effort, informal and formal container plantings can make a modern and stylish statement in every setting—shady backyards, sunny patios, exposed roof terraces, and as accents in beds and borders.Almost all plants grow easily in pots, and can accent a huge garden or nestle into a tiny space. Container gardens also offer the opportunity to bring fragile plants indoors to protect them from the winter freeze—as well as to start fresh again each season, allowing for continuous creativity and season-by-season décor. The Container Gardener’s Bible by Joanna Harrison and Miranda Smith covers every step in the container gardening experience, from choosing and placing containers, combining plants for drama and beauty, and maintaining and caring for container plants to attracting birds, bees, butterflies, and wildlife. It also includes a comprehensive directory of flowers, shrubs, trees, bulbs, fruit, vegetables, and herbs best suited to container gardens, categorized by color, foliage, season, habit, and planting schedules. This guide is also full of “Go Green” sidebars with eco tips and techniques, as well as a bonus feature on containers to combat noise, atmospheric, and visual pollution. Beautifully packaged with more than 500 stunning photographs and design ideas, The Container Gardener’s Bible is an endless source of inspiration for beginning and experienced gardeners alike.

It's time for home gardeners to rethink the traditional garden and explore the wide variety of options for growing edibles in "anywhere" gardens--from decorative pots and raised beds to unusual growing bags, hanging pouches, and tomato rings. These contained gardens are more manageable than long rows or plots and require much less work--yet yield just as much bounty. Featuring dozens of preplanned planting recipes, based on space or container sizes, Edible Spots and Pots allows readers to mix and match vegetables, herbs, small fruits, and edible flowers to create a plant-style patchwork based on the "thriller" (dramatic, focal-point plants), "filler" (midheight, bushy plants), and "spiller" (vines and twining plants) formula for creating interesting and botanically sound gardens. Plot-free gardening offers practical solutions for any circumstance a gardener may encounter (challenging spaces, soils, or weather), while also taking into account budget, time, and aesthetic goals. Author Stacey Hirvela shares many other interesting concepts, like One-Minute Veggies (foods that go from patio to plate in less than a minute) Doubly Delicious Crops that give two flavors from one plant, and space/yield ratios (vegetables worth their footprint). Gardeners will also find an enticing array of 60 edibles that grow well in a defined space for productivity and beauty.
