basic gardening book

Can anyone recommend a good basic gardening book for container gardening. I have the 'container expert' book. something like an 'idiots guide', especially regarding plant care and names of plants (I think the one in the expert book is a bit confusing, I think it assumes reader knows the names of the plants)



the series called garden expert by a dr hessyan [spelling?] are very good and easy to read and follow.

All garden books will assume you have some idea what the plants are called - at least the Expert series provides pictures. I have one called The Contained Garden by Kenneth Becket, David Carr and David Stevens which I've found very useful over the years, but it's old and i'm not sure it's still available.
