Use pots to their full potential and transform your garden – whether it's a small patio, windowsill or balcony.

With over 40 projects to make your own creative containers, let Frances Tophill show you how to use often overlooked pots to their full potential and transform your garden – whether you’ve only got a modest balcony, small square of patio or just a windowsill.

There is always room for a bit of greenery in your life. Whether it’s growing herbs to add a fresh touch of flavour to your cooking or planting succulents to display on your windowsill, containers help you to bring nature to the most inhospitable and smallest of spaces.

Frances covers a range of different planting schemes and types of container, from urns and troughs to chimney stacks and hanging baskets. She delivers expert advice on what to grow – from bonsais, bulbs and bamboos to tumbling and creeping plants and flowers – and shows you how to make a living wall, a pond in a metal trough or even your own bespoke containers. With Frances’s creative ideas, you can transform any garden into a host of inspirational and unique pots and plants.
