As for the book, you will notice that it is divided into several chapters (eight, to be precise), which are covering the most critical aspects of container growing. Its central theme stays in boundaries of what to do when you begin container growing.
Therefore, the matter of good base is covered in the first chapter, “What to consider when choosing a planter?”. The question of drainage, costs, and maintenance are but a few of those featured in this chapter. For the rest, you will have to subscribe to see.
The author did his best to save you a few dollars, so the case of old items repurposed as containers is featured in this article. So, if you have old boots, why not use them?
Next, the matter of soil, drainage and potting mix is covered in the following chapters, so that you can know what to expect. Of course, the author kept in mind that this book is intended for beginners (of course!) and things are really clear and easy to understand. I love how to care about plants is nicely intertwined with getting better results.
Oh yes, and there is also an AMAZING instruction on how to choose right potting mix for your container.
And if you are feeling adventurous, why not trying to make a blend in your garage?
Although many people think that sowing is trivial, the following chapter clearly says that this is not the case. From good preparation to a fine selection of seeds and varieties, and everything else which comes in between (I don’t want to spoil the fun), the author pointed out the most critical factors in growing marvelous vegetables.
The overall care about container-grown plants is more than watering from time to time. It also covers lighting, air circulation, diseases and pests, and all of those conditions are included in the last chapter. Basically, everything you need to know about how to keep the plant growing.
All in all, this guide will give you a nice picture of what will be expected from you, and if you can grow plants in containers in the first place. Since it is free, why not give it a go?
