Beautiful book with wonderful pictures and many different ideas. However, it doesn't have a reference list of plants and flowers and how they can be combined with others, which would be helpful as well.

I bought this book in mid-winter, when I was trying to convince myself that Spring really would come and push the snow away. I found it to be easy to understand and beautifully illustrated. I especially like the pictures for visual aids in putting containers together. The descriptions are helpful for beginning gardeners, in particular. This book is a good value for the money.

I flipped through several container garden books and this is by far the best for the beginner gardener! There are easy instructions to duplicate many beautiful designs in the book, and they are organized by sun, part shade, and shade so you know that you will have a configuration that survives well in the setting you intend. Finding this book totally made my week.

Got this book as a novice gardener. It had practical info, nice pictures and lots of interesting arrangements. After reading it, found my "style" is a little less fussy - I'm a simple one plant, one pot kind of aesthetic. But reviewing all the possibilities helped me get there. A good resource to get started.
