Booklist Review

Apartment and condominium dwellers look to container gardening as an increasingly popular option, but hanging baskets can also provide the perfect embellishment for front entrances and garden plans involving back porches, patios, or fences in need of pizzazz. Gardeners interested in vibrant rather than discreet plant combinations will appreciate the recommended colorful spring and summer planting themes with masses of blooms nestled in baskets lined with moss, coconut fiber, or unconventional materials like recycled felt. Basic how-to photographs illustrate Hendy's advice for creating seasonal displays, and an unusual project demonstrating a painted effect that produces an antique surface on earthenware. Her counsel covers general maintenance, dealing with pest problems, and what to do with baskets when on vacation. A final chapter identifies a brief list of recommended plants. --Alice Joyce
