Containers in the garden

Claus Dalby

Book - 2022

Create a bold and beautiful container garden with design and planting guidance from Danish gardening celebrity Claus Dalby in this English-language edition of his book, Containers in the Garden. Beauty, charm, and simplicity are the hallmarks of the Scandinavian planting techniques featured in Containers in the Garden. Celebrity gardener and Danish floral designer Claus Dalby shares his signature container gardening style in this gorgeously illustrated book. His distinctive use of a single plant species in each pot, with dozens of planted pots collected together, creates elegant and eye-catching garden displays. Partnered with an abundance of textures and often a monochromatic colour palette, Claus's container gardens change with the s...easons. By combining flower and foliage colours with beautiful pottery and layered displays, the results are nothing short of extraordinary.
