I always wanted to do container gardening. This is the perfect book for beginners and even for long time gardeners. I was able to use the information on planning and what plants go best together the most. Even though I have a garden every year, and a shed sized greenhouse, I learned about crop stretching, planting by the moon cycle and so much more. The pictures are perfect to go outside and use as a map to plant as well. This book even tells you how to compost. There are also recommended varieties of plants and all about the soil to use. I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy to review from Blogging for books, however all opinions are my own.
