Galvanized tub water garden

I used a galvanized wash tub to make a water garden! Just set the potted water plants in the water, anchor them with stones, and fill in with floating water plants. Remember to put in a mosquito dunk every month or so during warm weather! See more at http://ourfairfieldhomeandgarden.com or http://pinterest.com/barbrosen/

    Lovely, but what do you do with the plants over the winter?

    I bring the whole thing inside onto my brick floor in our heated sun porch. They aren't as pretty through the winter, but perk right back up when put back outside for summer. If you don't have room for a big tub, you could put the individual plants

    The contrast in the folliage is quite striking. Nice job Barb.
