We Review 'Containers' By Ann Treneman


Ann Treneman's "Containers" is a captivating addition to the RHS Greener Gardening series, offering a nuanced exploration into the world of container gardening. While its title suggests a focus on growing flowers, shrubs, and crops in pots, this book transcends expectations, delving into a plethora of innovative techniques and eco-friendly practices.

The book's structure is both comprehensive and accessible, divided into sections that cover a wide range of topics. From the creation of miniature pocket forests to the cultivation of wild edibles in containers, Treneman's expertise shines through in her detailed explanations and practical advice. She even ventures into unconventional territory, providing insights into the art of crafting a weed garden within the confines of a pot.

What truly sets "Containers" apart is its unwavering commitment to environmental stewardship. Throughout the book, Treneman emphasizes the importance of sustainability and ecological mindfulness, urging readers to adopt practices that align with nature's rhythms. By advocating for alternative container choices, such as repurposing old teapots, she encourages a shift away from conventional gardening norms towards more creative and eco-conscious solutions.

The visual appeal of "Containers" is undeniable, thanks to its exquisite illustrations and stunning photographs. These images not only serve as a source of inspiration but also offer practical guidance on everything from plant selection to container arrangement. Whether you're a novice gardener or a seasoned green thumb, you'll find plenty of ideas to spark your creativity and enhance your gardening experience.

One of the book's greatest strengths lies in its versatility. Whether you have a spacious garden or are confined to a small balcony or window box, Treneman's insights are applicable to a variety of settings. Her extensive plant listings cater to diverse tastes and conditions, ensuring that there's something for every aspiring container gardener to explore and enjoy.

Priced at £18.99, "Containers" by Ann Treneman is a worthy investment for anyone passionate about sustainable gardening practices. Its blend of creativity, sustainability, and practical advice makes it an indispensable resource for cultivating a greener, more vibrant garden, regardless of size or space limitations. Whether you're looking to embark on a new gardening adventure or enhance your existing greenery, "Containers" is sure to inspire and inform every step of the way.
