Growing A Garden Within A Garden With Containers
Space-Saving,  Controlled growth, Portable, and Perfect for Specimen plantings and to highlight outdoor seating areas.

Bamboo, Iris and Jade Trees in Pots

A great way to show off your garden on decks, balconies, and in flower beds as a main focal point.
Growing above-ground cuts back on weeding, and creates a nature theme on patios and backyard settings.

These are some of my succulents, vines, shrubs and trees growing in containers.


Puppy Gardening
This was sent to me, but no creator was credited. I thank the creator for making me smile.


I have lots of containers and planters in my landscapes, adding height and visual interest.
Easy to care for and moveable. Growth is also controlled. And less bending for me.

I include my above-ground and elevated raised beds as container gardens. 
Strawberry patches in raised containers/beds in front yard to protect them from rabbits.



 I have a few containers in the backyard, as well.
Rabbits are now confused and foiled.

Dwarf "Thundercloud" Plum Tree

I uppcycled the cracked  top of a birdbath. I unscrewed it from it's base. 
It sits on a rock edging, The bowl is large but shallow, and crack is 
small enough to allow good absorption and enough drainage for sedum and blue fescue.
This perennial arrangement returns every spring.

Clematis vines in containers at ground level climb up the porch fence.
