DIY Potting Bench. I would have to make it a little bit bigger and put a sink in it so when I pot plants all the soil goes down through the hole and into a bucket. *This would be an idea for using an old privacy fence we plan to take down.

A group planting in one large container is much more dramatic on your porch than several separated potted plants.

A small space can come to life with the right mix of heights, fun objects, and fine-foliage plants

Plant lemon grass in big pots for the patio... it repels mosquitoes and it grows tall & thick providing a lot of privacy.

Oversized lanterns make chic terrariums. This one has fake plants inside, but real potted plants could be used.

Potted plants for shady areas. My friend in La. does this and then she places the various potted plants at different heights around the trees in her yard. Beautiful!

Take an old cloth soak in cement water, drape over a stand and leave in the sun to dry. Paint and you have beautiful plant holders

herb garden in sunken pots... keeps it nice and organized and keeps the herbs from spreading like crazy

Did you know that you can simply plant the top of a pineapple in a pot and grow another? And it looks gorgeous!

Great for your porch or patio! Smaller pot in the middle filled with pea gravel to hold hurricane & candle...soil filled in around that pot & and then plant your favorite flowers!

potted garden - HOH Cyclamen, frost resistant for cool places indoors and outdoors. Ornamental kale. Autumn Heather, bud blooming for longer enjoyment.

Potting shed greenhouse or studio. Love the staghorn fern on the side. Placement for sun purpose is important. Don't want to get too hot.

Done in 5 minutes - Easy way to have herbs in the kitchen! Line the bottom of a mason jar with glass beads or marbles, then layer in potting mix, and then add the plant, and top with more glass beads. The photo shows Alyssum and Rosemary - and while Alyssum may seem like an odd choice for an "herb garden" it would be pretty in a kitchen, and does well with irregular watering - always important!

How romantic is this lovely pergola patio space? We love the use of potted plants and indoor accessories to truly make this an outdoor room!

My mother taught me all about this rule when building my pots... It really makes my pots look awesome. pretty and this is so easy to a 4" pot of blooming violas or any flowering plant ( miniature rose bushes are gorgeous set up like this, bought at most florists or greenhouses in the Spring ) .. don't let them dry out but never let them sit in water and enjoy them for weeks on your window sill...transfer to your garden and prolong their beauty.

Great idea for curb appeal. Make a plant tower and add your house number on the bottom pot. thegardeningcook....

I first made these Pebble Pots with smooth river stones in the pots, then I thought, Hey, why not use my gorgeous glass marbles? So, I made pots topped with dark green, sparkling glass marbles. OMG, it is so pretty.

How to grow Potatoes in Pots....Put Seed Potatoes in Egg Cartons for Sprouting Sprout (“chit”) potatoes before planting. In early spring, place seed potatoes in egg boxes, with the end with the most eyes facing upward, and set them on a cool windowsill. Plant when the shoots are ¾in (2cm) long.

Upcycled. Brilliant! Did with summer school kiddos- used duct tape to decorate instead of paint. Didn't add roof & hung on a beaded string as bird feeder instead.
