      Porch pond water gardening idea. Instead of soil/clay, use pea gravel, it will not muddy your water. Just rinse the gravel well before adding to your pot. Plants? I put lilies in my sunny pond every spring and they stay there all summer.

    TOP TIP: Flower Pot Drain Hole Cover: Just lay a coffee filter in the bottom of the pot covering the hole before filling the pot. The soil will stay in the pot and the water will still drain out because that is what coffee filters are designed to do; let water through. They last for a long time, too; by the time they fall apart, the potting soil is well packed and the plant has roots that hold the soil together.
