About the Author:

Kerstin P. Ouellet is the president of Pen & Petal Inc., a horticulture marketing firm. She is the author of The EuroAmerican Container Garden Cookbook. She lives in Fallbrook, California.

From Booklist:

Frustrated container gardeners, rejoice! Ouellet offers not just one, but one-hundred-and-one foolproof recipes for successfully creating stunning container gardens to rival any seen in nurseries or coveted on the neighbor's deck. From clay to concrete, stone to Styrofoam, no matter what sort of container, Ouellet demonstrates eye-catching displays for each medium. Logically delineating the precise procedures needed to assemble colorful designs, Ouellet takes the mystique out of mastering a horticultural art form many otherwise proficient gardeners find daunting. After covering the basic cultural requirements, Ouellet outlines 80 plant species both commonly and infrequently used in container creations. Each profile provides the pertinent factual data plus relevant descriptive information helpful for making informed choices. At the heart of the book are Ouellet's 101 detailed planting diagrams, which readers can reproduce as shown or use as inspiration for their own designs. With simple step-by-step instructions and thoughtful background rationale for design development, Ouellet makes it possible for even first-time container gardeners to create dazzling potted displays.
