About this title:

Synopsis: This guide to container gardening aims to inspire the beginner and experienced gardener alike to brighten up a window-ledge, balcony, backyard, basement, patio or roof. Whatever the location, climate, aspect or space, the book gives ideas for successful container arrangements. All the information the reader needs to create the displays is provided, from ingredients to maintenance. There is also advice on plant care, details about types of container and potting mix, and hints on design to help readers come up with their own creation.

Review: With glorious photography and practical text combining to make this book both beautiful and useful, Gardening Without a Garden is a wonderful title for anyone interested in container gardening. Featured plants range from colorful easy-care annuals to sophisticated succulents, and author Gay Search shows her creativity in the selection of all kinds of unusual containers. Helpful for beginners, each plant grouping contains a planting diagram and list of products necessary to achieve the specific look. All styles and price ranges are well represented, and each finished display comes with suggestions regarding space and climate. The special chapter on container care is quite useful, and step-by-step instructions are given for weather-proofing all kinds of baskets, barrels, and cans.

When it comes to plant care, the instructions are again most worthwhile--from preparing hanging baskets to setting up an irrigation system, the information is presented clearly enough for everyone to feel confident in tackling new projects. The pictures in the section on plant propagation are more useful than any amount of text, as they demonstrate beautifully how to separate seedlings, root cuttings, and divide overgrown herbs. A great first-ever container-gardening book for novices, this book is sure to inspire more seasoned gardeners to experiment with untried plant and pot combinations for a fresh new look. --Jill Lightner
