Spring is here, summer is fast approaching, and it’s time to get out into the garden! Whether you have a house with a huge, sprawling yard or a tiny apartment balcony, you can totally create a delightful and eye-catching garden. For those with limited space, the secret is container gardening, or growing plants in pots, boxes, hanging planters, and other containers. While the process seems awfully simple, (and generally speaking, it is!), there are a lot of things to take into account, such as the type of container, the type of plant, fertilizing, sunlight, and water requirements. The following books will provide you with a helpful springboard into creating your own container gardens, by making the process as fun and painless as possible!
