Abstract:

GARDENING Unlike similar titles (e.g., Malcolm Hillier's Container Gardening Through the Year, LJ 3/15/95), Search's new book on the popular topic of container gardening integrates planting designs with site recommendations. Search, a British horticulturist with 15 years' experience, groups her descriptions of container plantings in chapters devoted to alternative gardening spaces, such as walls, stairs, and entrances. Search's designs are well illustrated with color photographs and scale diagrams, and detailed maintenance information is also given. In a laudable departure from many popular U.S. horticultural books, which are not ethnically diverse, Search shows a person of African ancestry preparing a container. Though she could have provided more thorough horticultural advice for U.S. gardeners for instance, she indicates the USDA and Canadian hardiness zones for most but not all plants listed Search has produced a useful book for general readers.
