Not everyone has the benefit of a plot of land where they can create a garden. In fact, almost 25% of city homeowners lack the yard space needed to cultivate and grow a decent sized garden (according to Seattle Lawn and Garden) meaning more and more people interested in harvesting flowers, vegetables, and herbs are turning to containers. The options provided by containers are plentiful, from bringing your tomato plants inside during the winter to being able to rearrange them if you are doing construction or playing a game outside. But, getting crops to grow effectively in containers is another matter entirely. This book will provide every potential container gardener with the necessary steps and resources needed to grow their very own crops to thrive in any conditions. From the very outset, you will learn about how vegetables, flowers, and herbs grow naturally charts will provide you with a detailed breakdown of how plants grow and what they need to grow effectively, from root space to water consumption. Companion planting for small spaces will show you how the plants will survive with other plants in the same container and which plants can even be placed in confined spaced and survive. The basics of container planting, including the best single plant containers, two, three, and four plant combinations are provided to help you decide how to lay out your container garden. The top gardeners were contacted and interviewed, providing highly insightful information that guides you through how container potted plants grow and thrive.

Have you noticed? You continue to use cosmetics & products promising you an acne-free life, anti-aging results, smoother glowing skin... But the more you use these products, the fewer results you see. If you're like millions of other people, you may begin to feel they only prove to be a waste of both your money (the best of these products come with a hefty price tag!) and your time. There very well could be something else that is being "wasted," too -- your very health. It's true!
