From Library Journal:

Editor Appell, director of education for the Horticultural Society of New York and author of several gardening books, presents a practical, readable, and comprehensive handbook that will bring out the green thumb in anyone. What's exciting is the inclusion of lush photos and fresh ideas for unusual plant selections and potting materials, which will appeal to gardeners of varying levels of experience. Covering the many different types of potted gardens, the text offers clear instructions on how to plant, select or build containers, and perform seasonal maintenance and offers suggestions for stunning plant combinations. A list of sources for supplies and information is provided. This very visual book does a thorough job of providing expert tips for successful results and good descriptions of the cultural requirements for the suggested plants. Highly recommended for public libraries and all collections of gardening books. Deborah A. Broocker, Georgia Perimeter Coll., Dunwoody
