Here, by weaving together the pot-making process with planting design, Jim Keeling demonstrates how you can bring container gardening alive. Divided into the seasons of the year, Jim Keeling describes the planting and plant care stages. Jim also shares his design expertise in multi-species plantings and pot displays, honed both in his own gardens and his award-winning Chelsea shows. For gardeners and potters alike, this is a unique and inspirational approach to the art of container gardening.
