Creative Container Gardens

Barn box with Non-stop begonias, lamium, torenia, alyssum, and ferns

Container gardens are perfect for patios and porches

Each year our talented planting staff strives to come up with new and unique container gardens. We’ll plant up anything – even the kitchen sink! Whether you want to plant your own container or choose from one of our pre-planted ones, we’re happy to assist with advice and color selections.

Don’t feel like planting it yourself? Ask us about our design service. For a small fee, we’ll come up with an individual design just for you and do all the planting. You just take it home and water!

We can make anything into a container garden! Here are just a few of the objects we’ve used:

Lots and lots of pottery!
Bicycles
Sinks
Bundt pans
Collanders
Window Boxes
Chairs
Vegetable Crates
Baskets
Lunch boxes
Milk crates
And even a toilet!
