This is a wonderful guide to growing edible plants in containers. It begins with general information about growing crops in containers, like soil types, common pests, types of containers. Next, it offers 50 different sample arrangements of crops in pots to try at home. Each arrangement is well illustrated and includes a list of ingredients, step-by-step instructions, and a quick recipe that uses the crops in the arrangement. Finally the book gives growing tips for many common container crops.

This is just the sort of book that I have been looking for because it offers such a comprehensive guide to container crops. I found the information to be very useful and the directions easy to follow. I enjoyed seeing different arrangements of crops and have gotten several new ideas from this book. I also thought the recipes were a nice touch and a fun project. Overall, I am extremely happy with this book and I believe that I will find it useful for many planting years to come. ( )
