Yes, this book is pure eye-candy, but if you want to grow more than one or two veggies per container, you'll have to give up on the pretty flowers. I suppose we have to face it: veggies are space hogs.

Oh how I love this book... let me count the ways. 1) If only I could get a refund on all the winter-plurge purchases I've made for gardening magazines. Each photo in this book (free from the library) outdoes those magazine photos. I am inspired. Officially. 2) The book is laid out in 2 page spread format with recipe-style write-ups on how to fill a pot just as they do in the photo. Easy. Not so specific to parts of the country that I can't identify or grow these plants. 3) Who doesn't want to incorporate attractive edibles into their deck or porch containers these days? But it's hard to know what is going to grow big and gangly or what will be gorgeous eyecandy 30 days from planting. Go get this book. Love it as I did. It's simple. Doesn't ask much of you. And it's hard not to like at least SOMETHING in it.
