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 have had this book for years and when I lost all my books in a fire, there were a handful I wanted to replace right away. This was one - even if just the gorgeous pictures give you ideas for your own container gardening, it is a great book.

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.

I'm new to gardening and have never had much of a green thumb. Bought this book to educate me on the types of plants you can put in a pot and what plants go well together. Found it a very useful book with lots of information and pictures.

I enjoy any book with containers. All my gardening is container gardening. Flowers on my porch, deck and many hanging baskets. Also my veggies. I like "recipes" for different arrangements.
