    A great resource! I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys gardening. Good information, ideas, and instructions. I love looking through this book. So many ideas for plants that I would never have put in a pot!

    It will definitely help with some container problems we've been having the past couple of years. We just never know what to put in a container, and this will help decide what needs to go, and where to put it.
