This bok is very thorough in guiding you, whether you are a beginner or an expert, to create beautiful containers. It is set out in recipe form, describing the plants necessary to create the container pictured. There is even a diagram showing where to place each plant in the container, with suggestions for alternate plants. You get a shopping list, the plant requirments (sun, shade), size of continer and difficulty. If you are interested in container gardening, this is a great book and I highly reommend it.

I recently met Barbara at a booth at a local garden show. My friend and I picked up her book. We later spent an enjoyable evening discussing the beautiful container gardens oohing and awing as we got inspiration for our own gardens! This book has something for everyone. It has a great introduction to container gardening and Barbara gives you step by step instructions for potting and caring for each gorgeous creation. Barbara has a great eye for combining colors and textures. I am an experienced gardner and I found many new ideas in this book to try. I have seen Containers personal planted by Barbara and to say that she is " good at what she does " is an understatement I am so glad I picked up this book and you will be too!

This book offers a wonderful step-by-step process for creating beautiful and bountiful containers. The gorgeous pictures offer the inspiration and the directions are very easy to follow. (even for a non- green thumb person like myself) I would highly recommend this book......great buy!

LOVED THE BOOK! I'm finally retired and have more time to garden. I'm recovering from Bronchitis and downloaded some library books ... Gardening for all seasons is the one I just finished.
I just transplanted a small Blue Spruce (again). My son gave it to me about 5 years ago when it was only about 3 inches tall. He got it at an Earth Day Fair. I've managed to keep it alive and now have some great ideas of what to plant or place around it seasonally. The author has also inspired me to garden more with my grandchildren. Also liked how the book was set up with ideas for each season.

I volunteer at a Veteran's Hospital Service and find this book a great stimulation and asset-at-hand for working in their greenhouse and for adding to their environment. while they are hospitalized which probably will be a lifetime.

I am new to container gardening and was excited to purchase this book based on the author's impressive resume and the many good readers' reviews. Unfortunately, I found the flower arrangements very average (and I am being polite), but worst, the printing of this book is terrible! The colors on the pages are grainy they look like they were copied from a cheap color printer. I just don't understand how the publisher expect their readers to buy this book on gardening with the price of USD 21.99 and not even being able to see the colors of the flowers properly. If the system allows, I would have given this book no star at all.

I love the concept of this book. I have planted several of the planters for the summer and fall this year. The only downside is being able to find the required plants. I live in zone 8 and have had lots of trouble finding coral bells after August, which most of the autumn and winter containers call for.
