Book Description

Feb. 14 2012
Containers are a gardener’s best friend—they make it easy and fun to bring a burst of life and colour to your porch, balcony or front step. But so many of us get stuck in a rut. Frankie Flowers is here with 150 inspiring, beautiful and sometimes surprising container ideas to get your juices flowing. Each plays with Frankie’s signature technique of using a thriller, a filler and a spiller to make sure your pot will have maximum impact. Frankie gives you the breakdown on which plants he’s used, and to which conditions they’re best suited. And if you’re feeling a little peckish, Frankie’s even got some delicious edibles for you to throw into the mix. With Frankie’s step-by-step instructions, and the don’t-sweat-it attitude readers came to love in his first bestseller, Get Growing, Frankie’s Pot It Up will have the whole country going to pot—in the best way possible!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pot it Up is Inspirational! July 16 2012
By BiancaL
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A great book on container gardens, tantalizing not only to the eye but to your taste buds as well.

Imagine stepping out onto your patio on an early summer morning and picking fresh mint for tea--mint that seductively weaves amongst plump cherry tomatoes just waiting for your lunch salad. Snuggled against the tomato vines are clumps of green and purple basil and spicy Greek oregano. Your eye glides over to another planter with a rogue Russian sage looming its silver spires over the succulent begonia blossoms cowering shyly. A few sunny marigolds and flaming nasturtiums snuck here and there guard your treasure against those, ah so attractive critters with big appetites.

A shimmering ruby-throated hummingbird hovering over another large flower pot catches your eye, and you are spellbound--overflowing pink geraniums and spikes of blue salvia, blushing New Guinea impatiens and pink fountain grasses...


Or pick up Frankie Flowers' Pot it Up, and Live it Up!

You don't need a green thumb--with a little imagination, this book will turn you into an accomplished gardener. It worked for me. And now, I'm off to pick a few sprigs of basil to sprinkle over my fettuccine alfredo. Have a great summer!

Finally, a book that includes lots of good ideas and backs it up with great information. He also uses plants that are easy to find in Ontario.

5.0 out of 5 stars A much needed resource! May 12 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
At last a book for people who don't have the "know how". I love this book and bought one for my daughter as well. It is so easy to make up a beautiful, professional looking planter. You don't have to have a green thumb or worry about which plants need shade and which ones don't. My only problem seems to be finding the plants that Frankie suggests for his planters. You would think that Bradford Nursery would carry a lot of them but I found them to be wanting last year. Lets hope they do better this year.
