Clever Gardening Technique

Create an "Instant" Mixed Container
You can create a beautiful table decoration in a flash by combining living plants in small containers in one larger decorative container. Just set the individual plants into a larger container, basket, or long wooden trough. Then fill in around the containers with moss to hide your secret for a great planting that looks fabulous but took only minutes to put together. Remove the individual containers to water them or to replace with other plants, if you like.
