Good idea for multiple reasons: 1) equisetum grows so quickly and make even the newest newbie of a gardener feel accomplished and happy, 2) equisetum can get out of control and this container will prevent that from happening, 3) creates privacy and covers up some unsightly areas.

Mosquito repelling "Creeping Thyme" plant. It has citronella oil that makes it smell lemony. Put in planters on the patio.

Rooting hydrangea cuttings - Locate a stem of softwood and cut a shoot that has several leaves. Trim it into 5-inch-long pieces that each have a leaf toward the top. Remove extra leaves; then cuts the remaining leaf in half to minimize evaporation (and the need for watering). Dip the other end in powdered rooting hormone; plant the cuttings in trays filled with a soilless mix and perlite. Cover with a plastic bag, and stash in a shady location, misting regularly to keep the leaf hydrated.

Intensive Gardening: Grow More Food in Less Space (With the Least Work!)

Now THAT's a container! Need a list of probables to create this top to bottom: a bright green Colocasia/Caladium (Elephant Ear) // Persicaria microcephala 'Red Dragon' (or Lysimachia “Firecracker” – which is invasive planted in ground) // Monarda (bergamot - bee balm) "Pardon my Pink" // Coleus (red or pink) // Ipomoea - Sweet Potato Vine "Sweetheart lime"

Do this in the fall. Spring bulbs in Pots: store the potted bulbs in an unheated garage or storage room. Youll need to water every few weeks since the pots wont have access to rainfall. In addition to small pots, pack bulbs shoulder-to-shoulder in big containers for an abundant display in spring. Toss aside the spacing recommendations so you can get as many bulbs into the container as possible. This is a great idea.

Plants have best friends just like people do. Marigolds help tomatoes and roses grow better. Nasturtiums keep bugs away from squash and broccoli. Petunias protect beans from beetles and oregano chases them away from cucumbers. Geraniums keep Japanese beetles away from roses and corn. Chives make carrots sweeter, and basil makes tomatoes even tastier

Hostas in a pot: every spring they return, in the pot! Add geraniums and ivy for a fuller look.
