Container and fragrant gardens : how to enliven spaces with containers and make the most of scented plants

Image of item
Book
"A quick-reference guide that shows gardeners with little experience and time how to enliven spaces with containers and how to make the most of scented flowers and leaves. One of the greatest delights of a garden is a perfume that draws the visitor to bend down to inhale the fragrance. This delightful and practical book features lovely flowers with intoxicating scents that will create an aromatic garden or an indoor haven of perfumed houseplants. Growing plants in containers can extend your gardening horizons, allowing you to try plants you don't have the space or climate to grow in the ground, as well as bringing your garden right onto the patio, deck, or windowsill. In addition to highlighting classic annuals, bulbs, perennials, vines, and woody plants that are fragrant and that do well in containers, this must-have guide offers straightforward garden care advice, including handling different soil types, controlling pests, designing and maintaining container gardens, and how to grow trees and shrubs in pots"--
