Container plants: for patios, balconies, and window boxes
Limited land--or even no land space at all--needn't be reason to deprive plant lovers of their gardens. Heitz shows how lavish gardens can be created on a balcony, patio or porch with the help of urns, tubs and flower boxes. She gives detailed directions for year-round care of all kinds of plants. 350 full-color photographs and 120 color drawings.
