Jessica's knowledge of container gardening matches her brilliant knowledge of beneficial insects. She covers how to get started with container gardening, how to design and plant the containers, and gives tips for unique ways to use container. This book takes a close look at long term maintenance and care as well as troubleshooting problems and issues. This is a fantastic book which gives deep insight into the basics of container gardening. My favorite section is "More Container Concepts" where Jessica teaches super smart ways to adapt containers for multiple uses. For example, she discusses how to turn a container into a water feature and how to plant fountains with succulents or vegetables. She gives some lovely ideas for strawberry pots and more.
This is an excellent book whether you are a newbie gardener or an experienced horticulturist. Lots of great photos and fun ideas that will make your container garden beautiful. Definitely a five-star winner and a great gift for your favorite gardener.
It mostly covers the basics of gardening, including troubleshooting pests and other growth problems. It doesn't go into much detail about any specific plants or foods, but does a great job at describing what it says it will.
While this wasn't exactly what I was looking for, if you are new to gardening or gardening in small places, this is a great book that covers ALL of the basics. And I mean all. It's very thorough with tons of useful information for the newbie. More seasoned gardeners likely won't get much new information out of it (unless you're looking for some great DIY containers).
Pictures of colorful tubs with flowers and pollinators and larger garbage cans with an arch for squash to grow over, show how flexible your container garden can be.
Of course not everything is perfect and diseases and insects are covered with terrific images for identification purposes and are a major part of the book. The whole book is color coded on the corner of each page making it easy to find the 'troubleshooting' pages as well as the planning and harvesting.
