About this book

Container gardening is ideally suited to today's lifestyles - it provides the excitement, versatility and variety of in-the-ground gardening to those with limited space, time and resources. But in order to make the most of container gardening, aspiring gardeners need to know precisely which plants perform best in containers.

Author Ray Rogers profiles more than 500 plants in 180 genera. Along with his descriptions, the entries include each plant's height and spread, light, moisture, temperature and soil requirements, ease and rate of growth, principal interest and design attributes, potential problems and best method of propagation. In addition, over 500 photos provide a wealth of visual inspiration.

The Encyclopedia of Container Plants by Kay Rogers with photos by Rob Cardillo, will inspire beginning and experienced gardeners who are looking for great container gardening ideas.--Molly Day "Muskogee Phoenix "
