Perfect Pots for Small Spaces

20 creative container gardening projects

Combining inspiration with practicality, Perfect Pots for Small Spaces offers 20 exciting projects, each simple enough to complete in a weekend.

Containers come in all sorts of materials, sizes, and shapes, and can be used to enhance any outdoor space, from a small terrace to a large garden. In this highly informative and superbly illustrated book, award-winning gardener George Carter explains how to make the most of them. Divided into four sections—on terra cotta, masonry, metal, and wood—it has step-by-step instructions and ideas for seasonal planting plans that make container gardening accessible to all. Among the imaginative projects are painted pots, a wirework hanging basket, a rustic window box, a trough with trellis screen, a wooden obelisk, and a painted galvanized washtub. The projects are complemented by a plant directory, information on care and maintenance of containers and plants, and an extensive list of resources.
