Clever Gardening Technique
Container gardens can begin with just about any container -- an old wheelbarrow, bathtub, bird cage, "distinguished-looking" shoe, child's wagon, or even just a camouflaged bag of potting mix. If it'll hold soil and a plant, it's fair game. Mounds or cascades of color can come from begonias, petunias, ivy, geraniums, campanula, impatiens, succulents, fuchsias, azaleas, or vegetables -- patio or cherry tomatoes, strawberries, or herbs.
