Be creative when it comes to container gardening. By roaming through your local thrift store you will find treasures to use for container gardening. Here is an old wooden plant stand and a wooden crate filled with plants. A great treasure for your patio. Photo: purplehearthouse.com
I always like a wrought-iron bakers stand. I use this to house all my gardening bibs and bobs, little herb pots and my collection of grey tin pots, urns and birds. It makes a great display for the door out to the garden.
