Expertise: Container Gardening

Kerry Michaels wrote about container gardening for The Spruce from 2008 to 2016 and was a contributor to The Spruce Eats. After a move from Manhattan to rural Maine in 2001, she discovered she wasn't that great at landscape gardening, but could grow almost anything in a container. 

She has both written about and photographed gardens for professional publications, including "Growing the Northeast Garden," and "A Gateless Garden: Quotes by Maine Women Writers," both in 2015. She was Garden Editor for the James Beard Award-winning magazine ChopChop. and was head writer and producer of a CD-Rom, Country Living Style. She has written about gardening for Discovery Channel, Small Gardens, A&E, Weekly Reader, Disney, and Sesame Workshop.
