absolutelybeautifulFeb. 4, 2011 - Planting a beautiful container garden is an increasingly popular and easy way to create a garden. In Absolutely Beautiful Containers - The ABCs of Creative Containers by Sue Amatangelo, the author takes the reader though a progression of 200 container gardens from simple one-item pots all the way to large containers featuring a wide variety of plants.

Not content to use only traditional bedding plants, Sue incorporates new vegetative annuals, perennials, tropical plants, and even some evergreens. She discusses design principles such as colour, texture, height, depth, and plant needs for light and nutrients. She also suggests ideas for holidays and festive occasions, as well as pots for early spring and fall decorating.

Each container design features a plant list, planting diagram, and a colour photo. For more information, or to buy this book, visit the Canadian Garden Centre & Nursery bookstore.
