Creative Container Gardening

Container Gardening is great for small spaces. It is also a wonderful solution if you do not have access to a yard or where the soil is unhealthy or questionable. With container gardening you can grow herbs, vegetables and of course flowers and trees.

Another wonderful aspect to container gardening is being creative with what type of container you use. There are many wonderful ideas.  One does not need to choose traditional pots, unless of course you want to. You don’t have to have a small space in order to get creative with container gardening.  Many people add containers for some fun flair and decor to their outdoor spaces. Here are a few lovely ideas to get your imagination going.

1. Plant A Bike

This is a charming idea and a great way to add decor to your yard. Use an old bike and plant your favorite flowers in the basket.

2. Use A Hanging Shoe Organizer

4. Repurpose Old Furniture

This is another whimsical and fun idea. Use old furniture laying around or from a second-hand store, paint it and plant it. We love the addition of the lamp and pencil holder.

7. Rain Boots

A colorful and playful way to have both a container garden and decor for your outdoor space. Use old rain or gardening boots and plant your favorite flowers in them. Would be fun to use the whole families or add a new one each year.
