About this title


After the recent flurry of junk container publications, it is a relief to find one such as this: stylish, original and written by an experienced nurseryman. Adam Caplin now runs a wholesale nursery but previously founded and ran several London garden centres together with a couple of nurseries in Essex and Suffolk. A regular contributor for the gardening column of The Times Magazine and Gardens Illustrated, he is well able to transpose his ideas and expertise into writing. His vision for seeing potential in containers of all shapes and sizes demonstrates a fertile imagination and when combined with his plant knowledge and styling, the results are stunning. He emphasises the importance of matching plant with container, to complement forms and colours. He shows how to integrate them into a garden either alone or within groups. And he covers the practical side for all mediums used from drainage holes in metal to wicker protection. A diverse collection of containers of all materials from tin, concrete, ceramic and glass to natural fibres such as wood, stone and wicker. Even cardboard, plastic and children's toys provide temporary homes for temporary plants such as annuals and, in his hands, instead of looking tacky, look chic and quirky. Found in skips, building yards or within the home, he has amassed a veritable collection of planting paraphanalia. Attractively presented with stunning photographs by Francesca Yorke - in particular the photomontages - this is a superior look at junk container planting, giving expert advice and tips on this new trend of recycling in the garden.
