5.0 von 5 Sternen Very Helpful! 30. August 2001
Von Safiyya N. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I originally checked this book out from the library, and after renewing three times and being told I couldn't renew it any more, I broke down and bought my own copy. It is VERY helpful in explaining the types of plants that do well in containers, and how to take care of them, how to deal with pests, how to "winter over," and so on. There is an entire section on what you can put plants in (be creative!), what the different types of soils are and what that means to you, and what plants do well in whichever type of light you have. I keep my copy of this book handy, and refer to it often. It's the single best reference book I've found on the subject of Container Gardening. Herb Gardening for Dummies is also good, but not QUITE as good as this one.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Container Gardening for Dummies 18. Februar 2006
Von A Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
As someone with a "black thumb" (I can generally kill a plant within 24 hours!) I found this book to be very helpful. Even though there are huge amounts of real and applicable information here, the author manages to keep it fun and very readable. The best part is that since reading this book and putting it to use I haven't lost one plant! In fact, they seem to be thriving.

The only reason I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 is the layout. I feel more thought could have been put into the way the chapters are put together. Specifically, the fact that I had to skip past all the design ideas to get to the care information in the back. Even with this one minor flaw, I still highly recommend this book to anyone interested in starting their own container garden.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Great Basic Starter Book 12. April 2005
Von M88n - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I found lots of very useful information from pot sizes and soil (and soil-less) mixes as well as useful info on lots of plants, needs, watering etc. As container gardening is quite different than planting in the ground, I found this book VERY useful and different from all the other normal gardening books. I am a beginner, but love to research stuff to death and I find this book does give you a very good foundation to get started and do well.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very informative 19. Juli 2003
Von Carol - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I'm a beginner to gardening and found this to be a wonderful book. It even has a section on which conifers (Christmas-tree-type trees) can be grown in containers. This is great - I'm going to grow my own little forest on my balcony.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Excellent Reference! 2. April 2011
Von Charles Groen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
"Container Gardening for Dummies" is an outstanding book for someone who is just beginning in container gardening - as the name might suggest. It focuses heavily on gardening for those of us who have limited space in which to garden, and even goes as far as recommending certain plants for certain climates.

This is a great book, but a book more focused on gardening in general may be a better starter. Perhaps The Beginner's Guide to Urban Gardening: A Simple, Practical Guide to Creating Your Own Bountiful Indoor Garden would be more appropriate for a potential gardener who is breaking into the idea of gardening in a limited space.

The book also spends considerable time on decorative ideas for gardening, which may not be appropriate for a person with very limited space. Once again, a book focused solely on urban gardening would be excellent.

I purchased the book via my Kindle, and found the format to be entirely satisfactory. In some cases Kindle editions of books may not the easiest to navigate, but I found no problems with this particular work.

In all though, this book is an indispensable reference for a person who is familiar with gardening, and is attempting to sharpen their skills with container gardening and decoration. I learned quite a bit from this book, and would definitely recommend it!
