Arrange and rearrange this container garden to suit your space or your mood. You'll still be able to enjoy the heady fragrance of nicotiana and the cheerful "faces" of pansies. Blue fescue adds a contrast of texture and color. This garden uses one 24-inch-, two 18-inch-, and three 12-inch-diameter containers. It prefers a nice sunny location.
