Container Gardening

English Gardens represent controlled chaos at its most beautiful. Plants and flowers intermingling to create something truly gorgeous! I would LOVE to have one of my own. But let's face it... a lot of us don't have a sprawling yard or even a grassy patch to lay down our own personal field of dreams. Some of us are just working with a concrete jungle. 

BUT that doesn't mean you can't experiment with a foliage party. I'm talking about "Container Gardening" folks! Container gardening is fabulous for several reasons: They work with a range of plants and in a range of locations, from balconies to large backyards. You can grow herbs, small crops, spring-flowering bulbs, alpine plants and more in a small space! Click HERE to learn more about maintaining (not killing) your container plant!      

In the meantime, here are some beautiful images to inspire you!

I hoe I've inspired you to create your own little paradise... in a container!

    I'm horrible when it comes to gardening, so I thought of starting with a container to see how it goes.

  12. These are so cute! And would be perfect for some spaces I've been looking to move to in the city - since there isn't too much room for the greenery, these would work so well! Thanks for the inspiration.
