Lynn Messman of Gardens by Lynn demonstrates some easy tips to assemble your own container garden:
1. Choose a container: Size will depend on what you’d like to plant, but type can range from plastic to ceramic to lined baskets like this one.
2. Arrange the plants: Messman suggests a dominant center plant (or two), then contrasting smaller surrounding folliage and flowers.
3. Finishing touches: For some container gardens it can be fun to add decorative elements. Try a little arbor like this pussy-willow one, and a statuette (hello, spring bunnies!).
