Do you have a creative bent and seek ways of expressing it through gardening? You can put your artistic talents to use when designing container gardens. You can find step-by-step plans for designing container gardens in many books, but it is much more fun and satisfying to create your own. Creating the gardens is easy and is a fun way to learn about plant combinations, colors and textures. Think of plants as a palette from which to paint.
