Praise For…

“I have admired Harriet’s work with containers for many years – she is undoubtedly a leader in her field. How she creates a full-scale garden in containers is sensational, blending colour, texture and stature. Not only is it space-saving, but the artistry of this container work makes it an incredibly mindful and enjoyable process. The containers she makes are simply works of art!” –– Michael Perry, aka Mr Plant Geek

"On street corners and on front doorsteps across the world you will find some lame and uninspiring pots. They are difficult to get right, which is why, when given the chance to learn from a maestro, you should grasp it. Harriet Rycroft is a very talented conductor of containers, a potentate of pots and a tycoon of tubs. Her book is a pleasure and her advice invaluable." –– James Alexander-Sinclair, Garden Designer

"Harriet is the queen of ornamental container gardening!" –– Sarah Venn, founder of Edible Bristol
