A spilled flower pot is the perfect idea of bringing a little whimsy to your garden. Just tip Southern Patio's 22.5" Natural Oak Whiskey Barrel on its side, plant bushels of mums, and you have your own spilled flower planter. http://www.southernpatio.com/products/planters/hdr-012221-22-5-hdr-whiskey-barrel-natural-oak/
easy spiral herb garden. you can make several of these in your back yard and devote them to different plants.. I have one devoted entirely to small lettuces that I pick while it's still baby leaves and 2 more that are just for herbs.
