Having tried for years to get a decent crop of tomatoes out of containers, I wished I had this book before I ventured into micro-gardening. Everything from vegetables to flowers are covered, including essential information on soils, potting materials, and the pots and containers as well. Save yourself a lot of effort, time spent watching garden gurus on t.v., and a ton of money by referring to this book (you might actually have a potted garden you like).

I bought a few other books for Kindle on container gardening (I wish I never bought From Container to Kitchen see my review on that book) and this one is by far the best. I am an experienced container gardener looking for some tips to increase my productivity. I picked up some great tips and cant wait to try them out. I am already planning my garden. I always had trouble keeping things alive during the hot summers here, but now I feel confident that this year will be my best yet. I skipped some of the chapters (mostly houseplants and growing herbs) that I didn't need and still picked up great advice. I made lots of notes and even went out and bought a couple of fruit tree's that are doing great. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to either grow edibles in containers or even just houseplants. Look for great tips on Pot sizes and fertilizing techniques. There was also information on planting in cold or hot weather and watering. It covered common diseases and how to cure them. It also covers pests and how to deal with them. It is geared more towards organic remedies and states pesticides are a last resort.
