Garden Containers – Make Your Garden More Unique
Even if you don’t have the space or time to become an expert gardener, you can still feel like an expert when you garden in containers. It’s easy. All you need is a container (called a “planter” by gardeners), potting soil, and some plants. When you think about gardening in this way, it’s easy to see why there are so many container ideas. In fact, there are so many that you might need some ideas to get you and your pots going in the right direction. I have a lot of ideas for you, like how to garden in containers in the fall, how to garden in containers that hang, and even how to garden in containers inside. With these pictures, you’ll be ready to get your hands dirty and add some pretty new pots with plants to your porch or patio in no time.
Container for Old Tub Garden
Charm from the past. What else can I say? A Habitat for Humanity “Restore” might have an old tub. Don’t forget to drill some holes in the bottom for better drainage, so it doesn’t turn into a “pool” when it rains. Karen’s picture on “Flickr.”
Shae Garden Container
To make drama in a container, all you need is a simple formula to follow. Here, only four plants are needed to make it look like a floor-length dress. The key to making this work is to start with a raised planter so that the brightly colored ‘Celebration’ and ‘Florida Sweetheart’ caladiums stand out. Clusters of white wishbone flowers fill the spaces between the caladium stems and hide the pot, so you can use any freestanding container. The last thing that gets people’s attention is the graceful creeping Jenny that goes over the sides. This planter will look beautiful and be easy to take care of if you put it in the shade and water it often.

A Garden Container With a Coca-cola Box
I really like old crates like this Coca-Cola box that has been turned into a planter. Plant it while it’s lying flat on the ground, and let the roots grow for a few weeks before you try to stand it up. Or use it horizontally as a centerpiece for a table outside. Taken from “Nadia Knows.”

Classic Freestanding Container
Start with bright pink and yellow zinnias, like ‘Zowie! Yellow Flame’ or ‘Magellan Salmon,’ which are one of our favorite flowers because of their beautiful round shape. Cooler filler flowers, like purple verbenas and blue calibrachoas, are used to add texture and color contrast. To make this container garden even easier, choose cheap plastic planters that can stand up to the weather and are easy to move. Putting your pots together in a small space can give the impression of a cozy mini-garden. Also, when you put these beautiful colors next to each other, they look even better. You’ll love walking up to these bright, beautiful things.

Container for Gardening With Instrument Box
This one would be hard for me because I would have to destroy a beautiful instrument… If you could find a broken string instrument, it would be a great project… I think it’s a great idea to put art in the garden. Discovered on “Recyclart.”

Garden Containter With a Wooden Wicker Basket
Decorate an empty wall in your garden or patio with this natural-looking basket – a wooden wicker basket. It’ll look great against brick, wood or concrete and will be just as lovely. The stars of the show are the pink zinnias and yellow tuberous begonias. You’ll love how the zinnias have tight, round petals while the begonias have soft, open petals. The fillers are the blue Cape plumbago and golden lantana. An elegant spiller completes the design of this stunning hanging container, which has English ivy with its well-known, delicate form.

A faux-lead finish on a planter is a classic choice, but the tall, cylindrical shape of these fiberclay urns gives them a clean, modern, and geometric look. This style works well in any kind of decor because it uses familiar shapes. By choosing a neutral color or texture for your container, you can make the unique beauty of the flowers and leaves stand out. Here, the unique shape of the string of pearls adds a lot of architectural drama. The purple calibrachoa and blue ageratum add just the right amount of brightness to give this simple arrangement depth.

Hanging Fiber Clay Planter
Hanging containers are an easy way to add gardens to small spaces or to add beauty to your space in simple but unexpected ways. When combined with a simple hanging fiberclay planter, structural succulents provide a striking interior architecture for this original design. The green grass is broken up by purple fan flowers. Fan flower is different because all of its flower parts are on one side. These plants can also be evergreen in the tropical south. Because of how bright and bold their color is, they make a nice contrast to the deep, dark container that is hanging in the air.
