Container Gardening Ideas and Tips
Here are a few ideas for both the container and ideas for design when you container garden. The container is just as important as your plants that you put in the container. Anything can be a container. If it has an opening at the bottom, just use some chicken wire and packing peanuts with moss to plug it up.

and plant your flowers inside. a bag will keep the moisture in.
I plant in threes: and use one or two tall plants, one mounding plant with color, and one trailing as a good formula. I also use three shades of green for more visual punch . This one has variegated, whitish green and bright green for foliage.
