"These British books offer spectacular photographs showing delightful, creative arrangements of plants in a variety of containers. Donaldson (Plants for Small Spaces) suggests colors, container types, and plants to create ten different gardens, from Mediterranean to woodland to American country. Each chapter includes illustrated, easy-to-follow instructions for making containers like Provencal painted pots or fernwork pots. Each chapter also profiles a group of plants suitable for growing in containers, e.g., miniature bulbs, scented plants, and ferns. More an idea book than a cultural how-to, this unique book stresses evoking specific moods. Writing for the beginner, gardeners Jackson and Hutchinson explain how to grow plants in containers, hanging baskets, and window boxes, offering more cultural information than Donaldson. Sprinkled throughout are photos of planted containers specifying the numbers and types of plants necessary to create each look."
