The book is concise in its explanations and at the same time very informative. The illustrations are very good and explanations of where some of these containers could be used is very helpful.

Lots of information which helped me design more colorful containers. I loved the photographs and organization of the book and plan on using it for many years.

I live in zone 4. The book states that you should use plants from one zone colder, so that means zone 3. There are extremely few plants in the book, other than annuals, which allow zone 3. There are also extremely few trees or large shrubs which is what I am interested in growing in large tubs. The index mentions rhus (sumac), but it only has a picture of a container with rhus in it - no info on growing it.

I LIKE THE QUALITY, I LIKE THE INFORMATION, EVERYTHING WAS GOOD, I RECOMMEND TO HAVE BETTER DEMONSTRATION AND DETAILS FOR THE GOODS NOT ONLY GENERAL INFORMATION.

TALKING ABOUT QUALITY AND SERVICE, SUPER!!!

I WOULD LIKE TO GIVE MY OPINION ON THE SIPPING PART. SOMETIMES WHEN I BUY GOODS ON AMAZON, I GET PART OF THE GOODS SHIPPED IN THE FIRST PLACE WHILE THE OTHER PART TAKES TIME TO PREPARE IT FOR THE NEXT SHIPMENT WHICH IS COSTING ME MORE MONEY REGARDING TAX, SHIPPING AND CUSTOM FEES. I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE ALL MY GOODS SHIPPED SAME TIME EVEN IF I HAVE TO WAIT COUPLE OF DAYS MORE TO PREPARE THE PACKAGE AS A WHOLE.
