Gardening Is For Everybody

Yes, Even You!

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 find:

  • A color photo gallery of noteworthy plants ideal for containers, to help you plan your own Victory Garden
  • Six original paintings depicting the wide range of families and life circumstances for which container gardening is the perfect answer
  • 25 detailed line-art drawings that illustrate gardening techniques and set-ups especially valuable for container gardens
  • 20 first-person stories of World War II Victory Gardens, with advice and tender memories for today’s gardeners
  • A complete but easy-to-follow guide to growing a bounty of fresh vegetables, herbs, and edible flowers entirely in containers

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