containyourselfAug. 5, 2011 – Containers can come from anywhere and be anything as long as they have
drainage: that's Kerstin P. Ouellet's message in this colourfully
illustrated primer on container gardening. She includes not only the
basics but some actual plans and diagrams for foolproof plant-mixing.

Covering an array of the most beautiful ornamental grasses, perennials,
and annuals ever put in window boxes, baskets, pots, and urns, this
full-colour guide provides basic container gardening designs as well as
detailed information and suggestions for plant possibilities.

Eighty plants are profiled with photographs and information on height,
light requirements, frost hardiness zone, flowering time, habits, and
characteristics. Diagrams and detailed instructions for re-creating 90
designs are complemented by information on container characteristics,
care clues, and plant personalities. Attention is given to plants
recently introduced to the market.
