I love container gardening during the summer months because it let’s you grow your fave flowers where you can really see and enjoy them, right on your porch, patio, balcony or deck. After this morning’s post filled with lots of container gardening, I thought I’d share a book I’ve had for a while on this subject. It’s another one by one of my favorite authors…can you guess who?
In the BNOTP Library: P. Allen Smith’s Container Gardens: 60 Container Recipes to Accent Your Garden

3 Things I Like About This Book:
