Raspberry Shortcake container garden. Now doesn't that sound good enough to eat? Or Hummingbird Haven. Birds will be flocking to this container. All the containers in this book show how five plants make a beautiful palette.

Beautiful recipes for planting up containers - great taste in the colour palettes. Like this so much I'm going to buy a personal copy!

Our library customers have been recommending this book to each other. Ondra has made beautiful container combinations with just 5 plants. As the other reviewer said, this book has "tips and tricks" for even the most experienced gardener. Personally, I learned why plants prefer different types of containers Pot of Tea, Living Perfume and Just Right for Night were some of my favourite combinations. Definitely worth a look!
