Description

An introductory manual on gardening in pots and containers. Containers, of course, are the norm in cities and many suburbs, where space is at a premium, but gardeners with plenty of room will also appreciate the benefits of container planting. Containers dress up front walks, hang brightly from the limbs of trees, and energise a deck with colour and life. They are a great laboratory for "experiments", and also allow a gardener to grow plants that wouldn't otherwise winter over in northerly climate zones. In concise chapters, Peter Loewer explains: light, dormancy, temperature and watering; potting and soil mixes; vertical gardens, including vines in pots; how to create your own pool, and surround it with a beautiful water garden; growing fruits like bananas, alpine strawberries, and mangoes in containers; and forcing bulbs.show more
