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.
