Synopsis

Whether you love growing, love creating, or just want to liven up your home, a portable garden is just the answer, even for the smallest space. So many of us nowadays are crammed into our homes and a garden is a luxury that few can afford. But there is always room for a bit of greenery; whether it's herbs and spices to add fresh flavour to your food, or putting a jungle on your windowsill, a container can enable growers to bring nature to the most inhospitable and smallest of spaces. Frances Tophill covers the sustainable, crafty and culinary aspects of container gardening. Covering design and different planting schemes from urns and troughs to chimney stacks and hanging baskets. What to grow inside them follows - from bonsai to annuals, bulbs, grasses and bamboos, tumbling and creeping plants and flowers. There is also a section on plant and container care and ideas on how to make your own bespoke containers to express yourself creatively. This book will help you realise that you are not limited by the space you have but only by your own imagination. The perfect plot is achievable for us all, even if it's small enough to fit into your back pocket.
