New Interactive Tool Unearths the Secrets of Container Gardening

BLACKSBURG, Va. Interactive Design & Development, Inc. (IDD) is pleased to announce the release of its newest CD-ROM title about home horticulture, "This is Container Gardening with Jim Wilson."

Presented by Jim Wilson, the former co-host of "The Victory Garden" (PBS), this interactive CD-ROM not only brings him into your home with more than 40 video segments, but also includes "how to" guides on selecting and combining plants for containers, feeding and watering, and staging containers for visual impact. The resource section provides a printable list of plants and supplies needed for your plant and container combinations.

Mary Guy Miller, president of IDD, feels that with the boom in container gardening, the time is right for the introduction of this CD-ROM. "Over half of all USA households own a computer. When you combine that fact with the nation's number one leisure-time activity, home gardening, it makes sense to offer computer-savvy gardeners the tools they need to grow better container gardens," she maintains. "We are pleased to offer gardeners of all levels of experience this comprehensive resource on container gardening, and that it features Jim Wilson, who has had decades of experience in growing ornamentals and food plants in containers."

"This is Container Gardening with Jim Wilson" is the fifth title in the This is Gardening series produced by IDD. Other titles include: "This is Gardening with Allan Armitage: Allan's Garden, Annuals, Hostas, and Perennials." For complete product information call 800-433-9836 or visit
