Grow an Avocado Tree from the pit (for a houseplant, it probably won't produce fruit). After drying, the pit is suspended in a glass of water and once there is root growth of about 2″, it can be planted in a pot of soil and tended to as a houseplant. If your climate allows, you can plant this outdoors.
Cherries are one of my favorite fruits, but they have gotten expensive. So growing my own in containers seems like a great option. The best fruit trees for pots are dwarf varieties that produce full-sized fruit. Good cherries include 'Compact Stella' and 'Maynard Mini Stem'.
Bonsaï forest - it is cute, it is small, it has just a few trees; yet it is a stunning arrangement with well trained trees. Put your hand over the pot and you would not be able to tell whether this is a picture of natural trees or a stand of Bonsai trees. Nice design and fantastic execution,
