The container garden recipe book : 57 designs for pots, window boxes, hanging baskets, and more / Lana Williams ; photographs by Erin Scott.

Williams, Lana (Gardener), (author.). Scott, Erin, (photographer.).


"In The Container Garden Recipe Book, Lana Williams of Oakland-based Tender Gardener offers readers dozens of step-by-step recipes for outdoor planters, from classic terra-cotta pots to window boxes, urns, bowls, and more. There are recipes specifically designed to boost your home's curb appeal (a rustic birdcage-turned-hanging basket, a stately Japanese maple planted in a painted terra-cotta urn) and others that are perfect for backyard entertaining (an elegant tabletop trough of succulents, a concrete water garden that's sure to be a conversation starter). And with Lana as their guide, readers' yards will never be bare thanks to the creative designs for all seasons, from urns bursting with spring bulbs to an heirloom pumpkin converted into the perfect home for fall blooms. And recreating these stunning designs couldn't be simpler. Each recipe includes a detailed ingredients list and step-by-step instructions, along with hundreds of photos showing where and how to place each plant. Also included is foundational information on choosing vessels, planting techniques, and care instructions, as well as plant spotlights highlighting foolproof options for all climates and seasons, from spring bulbs to evergreens"-- Provided by publisher.
