Galvanized Metal Tubs as Planters Drill several holes in the bottom and put in a layer of gravel before adding your soil and plants. Once you drill holes in the bottom, use fingernail polish around the edges of the holes (inside & out) so the galvanized pots don't rust.
Versatile Majesty Palms We love to use inexpensive Majesty palms everywhere -- in rooms that need a little life and on patios and porches. It makes a gorgeous “thriller” plant in a big outdoor container -- with showy Tropic Escape mandevilla and hibiscus surrounding its base. Botanic name: Ravenea rivularis Care tip: Majesty palms like moist soil, but don’t allow them to dry out or sit in water.
