Title: Pots in the Garden: Expert Design & Planting Techniques
Author: Ray Rogers
An introduction to outdoor container gardening offers advice and suggestions for garden design, including how to use color, form and mass, texture, line and repetition, spacing and siting, water features, and a range of containers.
No longer a technique just for apartment dwellers or novice gardeners, the use of ornamental containers on decks, patios, terraces, and in the garden itself can save time, space, and money, while offering experienced home gardeners unique creative challenges, site flexibility, and experimental fun. Author and award-winning horticulturist Ray Rogers takes you on an engaging exploration into basic design principles as well as how to create focal points, use water, exploit the potential of empty containers, and more. Stunning photographs by Richard Hartlage provide guidance and inspiration, as well as visually explaining each principle. Gardeners at every level of experience will find inspiration and instruction in this comprehensive book.
