To Go - Creating and Designing a Container Garden
In this unique book on
container gardening, accomplished gardening author and expert
Sydney Eddison tells readers how to plant and grow a lush garden
on any deck, terrace, balcony, or in the backyard. Container
gardens are easy to maintain and require a minimum of physical
effort, which makes them ideal for today’s on-the-go
gardeners whether they live in the city, suburbs, or country.
In GARDENS TO GO, Eddison offers guidance on designing container
gardens, including how to coordinate plants for color and texture,
and how to mix and match various flora to have a beautiful garden...anywhere.
There is also information on how to change your foliage for different
looks from month to month. Eddison concentrates on summer gardens,

for multi-seasonal container gardens. The book's engaging layout

sources for gardening supplies, a USDA plant hardiness zone map,
and an index.
