Creative combinations and effective methods for planting in small spaces

Themed ideas for beautiful containers, from a tumbling viola basket to a cottage garden in a terracotta window box, including displays based on color, scent or the seasons

Essentials tips on choosing the right plants for every type of container

An illustrated A-Z of houseplants provides at-a-glance information for over 180 varieties

How to keep your plants in top condition, from simple care and maintenance to identifying and treating pests

Gardening is a therapeutic and rewarding pastime, but not everyone has the luxury of a large garden to cultivate, nor the time and energy to spend on it. Planting in containers is the perfect way to make the most of small spaces, indoors or out. Keeping plants in containers is easy to do, and with a little thought you can completely transform a small patio area, a window, or a corner of your home.

Indoors: Even without outdoor space, you can still enjoy gardening with graceful and exotic houseplants. An illustrated A-Z directory tells you everything you need to know about over 180 plants. There is also advice for using houseplants creatively in the home, from simple yet effective groupings of particular plants to bottle gardens.

Outdoors: All the information you need to successfully create and maintain 160 glorious planters, boxes and tubs, including types of container, soils, planting up, and general upkeep and maintenance. There are container planting schemes for every aspect and style of garden. Beautiful color-based projects allow you to combine plants of complementary hues or a single shade, and there are many themed designs.

With over 2200 photographs this book contains everything you need to know about gardening in pots in one comprehensive volume.

Stephanie Donaldson worked as a professional gardener for many years and currently lectures on various horticultural subjects.
