Continuous Container Gardens: Swap in the Plants of the Season to Create Fresh Designs Year-Round
Tired of container gardens that look great in the summer but not the rest of the year? Garden designers Sara Begg Townsend and Roanne Robbins offer an innovative system for creating stylish container gardens that can change with the seasons with a minimum of fuss. They begin with a "main-stage" plant--a woody plant, garden ornament, or eye-catching perennial--and then add a secondary player for texture and variety. As the seasons change, they show how easy it is to swap plants in and out for a dynamic display that looks great year-round. Their simple approach yields endless variations, seasonal bursts of color, and varied textures that echo the ever-changing beauty of nature. The book features designs for twelve containers, each with a unique plan for swapping plants every season, for a total of 48 exciting looks.
