By Kerry Michaels:

In 2001 my family and I embraced radical life change and moved from Manhattan to the coast of Maine. I quickly found out that I was not much of a landscape gardener, but that I could get incredible results and satisfaction from container gardening.

Container gardening, writing and photography are my passions. On About.com I can combine all three.
