Master the art of growing flowers in pots year round with inspiration from stunning full-color images and expert advice from the Sunday Times bestselling author of A Year Full of Flowers.

Growing flowers in pots is a charming and accessible way to enhance any space, from large gardens to small city apartments. Get the pots right, and your garden will take on a cheerful energy of its own. They are the bubbles in the champagne, the cherries on the cake, the final flourish that brings a beautiful garden to life. And with pots, there is one iron rule: more is more.

Discover practical design tips that will enhance your containers. Use ingenious tricks when combining flower colors such as choosing a BRIDE (the star of the show), a BRIDESMAID (similar to the bride but smaller and less conspicuous), and a GATECRASHER (the color contrast, which brings the whole thing to life). Learn all about the types of forms and plant structures-THRILLER, FILLER, PILLAR, and SPILLER-and how to put them to best use. And even consider simple concepts with newfound importance, like mounting flower pots onto a wall or elevating them to the table so you see more of them, for instant impact.

Following the seasons, A Year Full of Pots shows you how to make your own evolving tapestry of color through long-lasting container combinations.
