I was interviewed for this fun article in the Chicago Tribune. It’s all about beautifying container gardens on patios and balconies:
In theory, containers overflowing with flowers, herbs, grasses and vegetables can transform balconies and porches into green and leafy garden retreats.
In reality, the effect is often closer to “Patio dotted with random plants.”
We asked Fern Richardson, author of the new book, “Small-Space Container Gardens: Transform Your Balcony, Porch or Patio With Fruits, Flowers, Foliage & Herbs” (Timber Press), how to bridge the gap.
