euroamericanJune 10, 2011 – At long last – a container garden book written for the professional grower! Whether you are a wholesaler or you offer your plants for retail, your container program will achieve new success by following the tips and recipes found in The EuroAmerican Container Garden Cookbook.

Kerstin Ouellet serves up the tasty morsels of information you've been hungering for - design considerations when creating combos, as well as production techniques and parameters, including container selection, media, nutrition, light, growth regulators, pest and disease control, shipping, and even scheduling. Also, charts in the back of the book show which plants are compatible for harmonious arrangements in full sun, partial shade, and full shade.

A cookbook wouldn't be complete without recipes. Here you'll find 60 recipes for stunning hanging baskets, patio planters, and window boxes. Each recipe features a full colour photo of the finished planting, a diagram showing how to arrange the plants, and of course, the plant "ingredients." Plus, you'll find production costs for each combo and a suggested wholesale price for each garden.

For more information or to buy the book, visit the Annex Bookstore.
