Creative Container Gardens
Container gardens work just about anywhere, even apartment balconies or tiny backyards. Check out these great container options and plant combinations for inspiration!
Looking at objects in a different way– in this case upside down– can help you create unusual container gardens. Bonnie Bagwell flipped a glass light shade and used it as the base for this eye-catching container garden. Bagwell won first place for her design in the traditional category of the container garden competition at the Lewiston GardenFest, which was held Saturday and Sunday, June 22 and 23, 2013. The event also included a vendor fair, garden walk and speakers.
My First Waterlily Flower- I live in the desert and as a project 2 weeks ago, I set up 4 container ponds on my north porch. I have 3 Hardy Waterlilies, 1 Tropical Night-bloomer and 2 Bowl Lotus. This morning I woke up to see my first Hardy lily out and 4 more buds. I can see tiny flower buds at the crowns on all but the lotus. Lotus are growing leaves well. From: photos.gardenweb....
