Product Description

With few exceptions -- such as corn and pumpkins -- Everything edible that's grown in a traditional garden can be raised in a container. An extraordinarily complete, plant-by-plant guide written by two seasoned container gardeners and writers,

This book covers vegetables -- not just tomatoes (17 varieties) and peppers (19 varieties), but haricots verts, fava beans, Thumbelina carrots, and sugarsnap peas; herbs, from basil to thyme; edible flowers; and perhaps most surprising, fruits, including apples, peaches, Meyer lemons, blueberries, currants, and figs -- yes, even in the colder parts of the country. Paperback, 432 pages.

Publisher's Description

With few exceptions-such as corn and pumpkins-everything edible that's grown in a traditional garden can be raised in a container. And with only one exception-watering-container gardening is a whole lot easier. Beginning with the down-to-earth basics of soil, sun and water, fertilizer, seeds and propagation, The Bountiful Container is an extraordinarily complete, plant-by-plant guide.

Written by two seasoned container gardeners and writers, The Bountiful Container covers Vegetables-not just tomatoes (17 varieties) and peppers (19 varieties), butharicots verts, fava beans, Thumbelina carrots, Chioggia beets, and sugarsnap peas. Herbs, from basil to thyme, and including bay leaves, fennel, and saffron crocus. Edible Flowers, such as begonias, calendula, pansies, violets, and roses. And perhaps most surprising, Fruits, including apples, peaches, Meyer lemons, blueberries, currants, and figs-yes, even in the colder parts of the country. (Another benefit of container gardening: You can bring the less hardy perennials in over the winter.) There are theme gardens (an Italian cook's garden, a Four Seasons garden), lists of sources, and dozens of sidebars on everything from how to be a human honeybee to seeds that are All America Selections.
