Add color to your outdoor decorating with a fence covered with suspended flowerpots. It's wall art for your outdoor room. Start with nine terra-cotta pots and coat the bases with spray paint. Next, plot the grid arrangement and secure pot hangers to the fence. Finish by suspending pots from hangers and filling each container with brightly colored annuals or herbs.
Herb garden in a 2' tall strawberry pot. Cut a piece of 1" PVC pipe that fits standing on the bottom of the pot and comes all the way up to the lip of the pot. Drill holes every 2" all the way down the pipe. Pour water right down the pipe, it will reach all the soil right down to the bottom of the pot. It's usually not possible to center the pipe as a plant would go right in the center, but the pipe still makes watering much easier.
