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.

  • Great book

    This is another container gardening book that I had checked out from the library a couple of times over the last couple of years and could never renew because there were always requests for it. It does not have glossy color photos, but it does have a lot of images. The descriptions and information are very detailed and well organized. Some recipes are included. I do not have a green thumb, but I feel this book will really guide me in creating a successful balcony container garden...which I am finally starting this year!

    This book has been one of my "bibles" for container gardening for at least 3 years. I am buying another to help my grandmother get started with containers so that she can still enjoy a garden without so much work. It has great information, low cost growing tips and is great to purchase before to help you plan out your tasty harvest.
