This is one of the books that I credit with getting me excited about container gardening. This book covers vegatables, herbs, edible flowers and fruits: including suggested container sizes, number of plants per container and good varieties to try. It also has tips on how to cultivate and when to harvest. Beautiful photographs and a few recipies round out the offering in this 144 pg book. I refer to it often and can see myself using it in the years to come as I expand my garden varieties.
