For those who wish to stay closer to home, the paper-over-board The Gardening Book by Jane Bull offers approaches to gardening ""with or without a garden."" The author begins with the basics, suggesting that gravel line the bottom of a planter to keep the roots from getting soggy. Photographs illustrate her ideas for year 'round ""Pocket Plots"" (miniature gardens that fit on the lid of a jar) as well as classic flower and vegetable gardens. ""Grass People"" and painting ""Picture Pots"" offer fun for the less ambitious.
