About the Book

Even if all you have is a postage stamp's worth of space on a balcony, patio, or front stoop, The Container Victory Garden equips you to dig into the joys of container gardening—right where you are.

Imagine this: In the morning, you pluck a few mint leaves from your backdoor herb garden and add them to your tea. A few hours later, you step out onto your patio and collect a handful of lettuce leaves for your lunch salad. Just before dinner, you harvest a few basil leaves and cherry tomatoes for a delicious caprese pasta.

In her trademark warm and informative style, bestselling author and expert gardener Maggie Stuckey shares everything you need to know to succeed with container gardening: planning, gearing up, planting, nurturing, and harvesting.

In The Container Victory Garden, you will also find:

  • detailed line art drawings that illustrate many gardening techniques and set-ups
  • first-person stories of World War II Victory Gardens and their inspiration for today's gardeners


This is the promise of container gardening: a fresh bounty of vegetables, herbs, and edible flowers you can enjoy in every season.

Tables, illustrations, photo gallery, and the appendix are included in the audiobook companion PDF download.


'Stuckey delivers a simple manual on how to grow plants in containers. The thorough, no-fuss advice for growing vegetables, herbs, and flowers will get beginners started in no time.'
