Combining the cool style of Modernism with plantings that really work, this book places the emphasis on reality - real containers with established plantings in specific locations - mixed with a sense of adventure. "Cool Containers" shows how understanding a locations' particular set of constraints will enable you to choose the right container and plant species that thrive in it. There's a city roof garden without any protection from the elements where tough concrete planters, heavy enough to stay put even in the fiercest storm, are filled with maritime plants chosen to withstand drying winds, lashing rain, burning hot sun and airborne pollution. A damp and gloomy basement garden is home to a pot of delicate ferns and woodland flowering plants. There are schemes for all sites, whether kind or cruel.
