Summary

Simple and foolproof! Enjoy beautiful container plantings with no stress or fuss. Container Theme Gardens offers 42 plans for container arrangements, each using just five specific plants that you can find at your local garden center. There's something here for every setting and every style, including a meadow in a box, a pond in a pot, a simple salad garden, and a combination that will attract hummingbirds. Each plan includes photographs of what the full planting will look like, as well as a handy shopping list so you know exactly what you need.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "The latest from Ondra (Five-Plant Gardens) is a practical and planter-friendly guide to gardening-no garden required. Focusing on pots instead of plots, Ondra demonstrates the appeal of growing plants in containers with 42 original designs. Each design uses a five-plant palette of plants that complement each other and the pot they're displayed in. For example, a terra cotta container holds fuchsia, coleus, spurge, sweet potato vine, and heuchera, their colors keyed to the clay pot's. For each design, Ondra teases the bouquet apart with descriptions of each plant, then offers "Tidbits, Tips, and Tricks" plus commentary on the plants' behavior through four seasons. She helpfully adds substitutes: if Arizona apricot blanket flower is not available for the mini-meadow design, she suggests mesa peach or "another mounded annual... with daisy-form flowers." Rob Cardillo's photographs accentuate Ondra's seductive designs in this comprehensive, easy-to-use book. This is not an armchair gardener's book-anyone can do it! (Dec.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
