Feb. 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.
