What can I plant in my garden bathtub?

Garden Up Green - CaroleCindyKmdreamer


I have a garden bathtub in my backyard in nevada. It gets full sun and heat. I would like to plant a small tree or one or two bushes that would not require a lot of depth or width as it grows. Also i would prefer something that wouldn't lose its leaves. Any ideas?

    Contact your County Agricultural Extension Cooperative. They are the most knowledgeable about all growing things in your local area.

    I would suggest 2 things

    1. See what they are selling at your local nursery since they only sell what grows and thrives in your region
    2. Take a walking tour of your neighborhood with a camera to get great ideas and good photos

    Since you live in a territory with full sun, I recommend that you plant cacti in your bathtub. Go to your local nursery to see what selection you can buy. I live in a Chicago suburb and I have a cactus approx 4 feet tall. Inside. I'm sure you will find many more. So you could plant a variety of cacti.

    I would do something simple like a drift rose and herbs. Very easy care and would look really fun.
