This lovely book about container gardens is filled with advice and is great for gardeners of all levels, but will be especially helpful for beginners. Palmer has a fresh, modern approach to plant and color combinations, which I really loved. Each container garden project she features—from Summer Brights to Provencal Pastels to Ombré Herb Pots—includes plant lists and step-by-step instructions (sort of like a recipe) so it’s easy for anyone to create the same beautiful look.
Whether you have a roof terrace, a tiny balcony or just a window sill, there's no excuse not to do some gardening. In Modern Container Gardening, Isabelle Palmer shows just how easy it is to get started in the garden – and how to make the most of every little space. Modern Container Gardening is the perfect book for novice gardeners who are looking to make the most of the space that that they have. The chapters include the basics, how to make a garden in a day, one-pot wonders, window boxes and finishing touches. It contains a mix of small gardens, singular containers and window boxes, all of which are stylish and easy to manage. This is an accessible book for anyone looking to start gardening.
