Oxford Times A simple hardback to guide you through all the do's and don'ts of pot gardening. A nice mixture of design ideas and down to earth advice. Amateur Gardening The ideal gift for a container gardener keen to extend their repertoire... Clevely reinforces what most gardeners know: that with a thoughtfully assembled collection of containers and plants, a concrete patch can become a potted paradise. Evening Standard
