I will only ever have various pots at this house, however long we live here, there just seems little point in putting lots of effort into the single, thin and not very deep border we have, when we could be moving out in a month's time, which does get tiring, but I'm happy with pots for now, at least until I see all of your fabulous gardens of course!


I like reading books, and getting inspiration for how to arrange pots, at the moment all mine are single plants, and hope to change that, can anyone recommend any good books? Especially for new starters!

I dont think you need any inspiration arrange pots Sweatpea. Just go with your dreams until you move. You could always try the 'PALLET' and 'LIVING WALL'  thread for future inspiration? All depends on your DIY Skills

Kind regards

Christine Walkdens no-nonsense container gardening is a great book with lots of pictures and easy information. She covers flowers, vegetables, has an unusual plant section, fruit and combined growing of veg and flowers. I love this book as I grow in containers as well. Also the works book shop do some cheap gardening books and  I got the paperback RHS container growing book from there for about £2.99 or as Phillippa says look in your local library to see which books you like best.
