No matter how big or small a garden is, there is always room for a container. They are available in a wide range of styles and sizes and encompass everything from urns, troughs, planters and tubs, to hanging baskets, window boxes and wall pots. They can be used on terraces and patios to soften their appearance, form a point of interest at the end of a path or showcase a particularly wonderful plant. Whatever is needed in a garden, a container can be the answer!Home Gardener's Container Gardens covers everything that you need to kw about container gardening - from the basics of which container to choose, guidance on seasonal displays and creating a herb garden to container water features, indoor hanging baskets and planting a strawberry barrel. There is also invaluable information on looking after plants, raising new plants, fixing brackets and supports and pests and diseases.
