We move to a new Facebook-page (Willem Van Cotthem)

Dear Fan of Container Gardening,

In order to render my efforts for promoting container gardening more efficient, I decided to concentrate my activities on a ‘new’ Facebook-page.  From now on, I will collect all my postings on this new page, which means that I will not continue to post them here on this website.

Here is a special request for you : please visit my page called



and click on the ‘Like’ button to show your interest.

Looking for a simple and user-friendly classification system of all the available photos, I opted for a page with a series of albums to be created with available illustrations (photos, videos, …) classified in categories :

• Types of containers : pots, bottles, planters, trays, barrels, sacks, bags, cans, cups, cartons, gutters, …

• Species of plants grown in containers : vegetables, herbs, ornamentals, succulents, …

• Types of container combinations : risers, towers, hanging containers, …

The number of albums will grow when illustrations of new CG-ideas are uploaded on this Alliance-page.

I started uploading some albums myself, so that you get soon a clear view on our main objective: making available for all our CG-fans a fantastic survey of container gardening potentials.

Please help me to get a swift development of this “encyclopedia” of container gardening images by clicking on the ‘Like’ button of “Container Gardening Alliance” at http://www.facebook.com/willemvancotthem

Sincere thanks.

Willem Van Cotthem
