Container Plans & Ideas

A chair as a planting container? A bread box? How about a toolbox or trough? There are fresh, fun, and easy container gardens that you can fill your yard with. Create a charming little landscape in a vintage wheelbarrow that you can move about to suit your mood or lifestyle. Or use a plant-by-numbers guide for creating eye-catching container gardens. If you lack room in your yard for vegetables or particular types of plants, such as succulents, there are ways to use containers to add them, including spots on a deck, balcony, or patio -- or even going up with vertical gardening, which can be used indoors or outdoors. Theming containers is another alternative; try growing a planter full of salad greens or grouping strawberry jars. Shade is a difficult gardening condition, but there are good container solutions that add blooms and foliage to your sun-deprived spots. Blooms are often a focus of containers, but foliage is a great way to fill containers with distinctive visual interest; here's how to liven up your pots with foliage-focused collections. If you're still looking for advice and ideas, answer some questions for a personalized plant-by-numbers container design.
