About The Container Victory Garden:
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. This is the promise of container gardening: a fresh bounty of vegetables, herbs, and edible flowers you can enjoy in every season.
Maggie Stuckey is a gardener who cooks, a cook who gardens, and a writer happily immersed in both arenas, as the titles of her books suggest: Gardening from the Ground Up, Soup Night, Country Tea Parties, The Complete Spice Book, The Complete Herb Book, The Houseplant Encyclopedia, and five others. She divides her time between Portland, Oregon, and the tiny coastal town of Ocean Park, Washington.
