This is a wonderful fully illustrated book with tons of great information, It does concentrate mostly on gardening FLOWERS and some herbs, for looks, so if you are looking for container gardening RE: Fruits & Veggies, this isn't the book for you, although the intro does have a lot of good info about choosing containers, maintenance, frost zones in Canada, Etc.

all in all an awesome reference guide, good strong book you could even have out in your garden with you!

I can't say enough about how great this book is. The full colour photos and easy to use sections are fantastic! Especially helpful are the different sections (Plants at a Glance, Introduction, Plant Directory, Glossary, and Quick Reference Chart).

The Quick Reference Chart at the back of the book is an extremely useful summary that tells you the type of light and soil mix required for the plant as well as the features of the plant.

Every container gardener will want this book and will love the bright and inspiring photos - plus, it is small enough pop into your bag to go with you to the local garden store.
