I love this book! I live in a condo with only a concrete patio so I am limited to container gardening. This book was a great guide for plant types and spacings for various pot sizes. It is quite similar to the self-watering container gardening book by the same author, but I have found both to be useful. This is my third year using this book while setting up my garden and the advice has paid off!
