This book has some wonderful ideas for interesting containers. Step-by-step instructions on how to make a planter out of practically anything.
If you're looking for containers themselves rather than unusual plant combinations, this is the book for you. Not terribly useful if one is looking for new ways to arrange and display plants in containers. It's the containers themselves that make this book.
After growing up with lawn after lawn of nandina, mondo grass and impatiens, I began to garden in a completely different way after I read this book. Rebecca Cole is my hero- she made this her business and her life because she loved junk and unique gardens and things and places that reflect the personalities that create them.
She shows places where gardens should not exist but they do and she shows step by step how to create instant little gardens in odd places and in very unexpected containers.
This book goes great with the 'Junk' series by Mary Randolph Carter.
