This is a great book. The best I have seen. I like the way the flowers are listed so if you wanted to copy the look it is easy. Great pictures. Information was excellent.

Very Helpful! 3/16/2019
I am really enjoying this book and so appreciate the step-by-step guidelines. I also really appreciate the list of plants that have worked well and ones that haven't necessarily performed as well. I am going to order a couple of the baskets and posts and am excited to add beauty to my garden this spring. It has inspired me. :) (Plus it's just nice to look through at this time of year when it's so dull outside.)

Great Guide 4/5/2018
I bought this book because my containers are mediocre at best. Pamela covers every aspect of container gardening and not just what plants look great together. My only disappointment is that the entire book is dedicated to side planters and it doesnt say that in the description. I dont have any side planters at present but I should still get great ideas for my regular pots.

This is a great book for generating ideas of what to do with containers for the experienced as well as novice gardeners. The pictures are breath taking.

Container Gardening 4/30/2017
I bought this book for ideas. It is my go to book for doing my pots. This past year I was so pleased with my ten pots and the combinations I am buying the other book on container gardening. This book gives such easy to follow instructions even new gardeners can't go wrong. We are in several garden walks and I got the wow factor I was looking for when visitors came around the corner and saw the back patio and then looked into the woods at the gathering place around the fire pit with the six planters as a back drop. I followed the combinations suggested and had great results. Highly recommend this book for its ideas, easy to follow instructions and great pictures.

Now my baskets are beautiful 5/12/2015
Last year I used my own ideas for planting the Pamela Crawford baskets. The results were pathetic. This year I decided I needed help so ordered this book. I copied two of her baskets and now my baskets are stunning. They are so pretty that I keep going to the back door to admire them!
