22 Plant Ideas For A Spring Container Garden

While many of my posts about container gardens concentrate on various objects that can be used as planters, this is all about the plants themselves. There are twenty-two plant combinations and while petunias are included most of the ideas use less usual plant combinations. As a result there are some really interesting ideas which will provide inspiration for anyone wanting to try something new. I came across this list of 22 container gardens for spring on the Bless My Weeds website.

Want to grow a beautiful garden, but have very little space? Container gardening might be right up your alley. There are plenty of gorgeous plants and flowers that do great in containers. There?s no reason why you can?t plant several of your own. Plant single flowers or mix different types of foliage to make things more interesting. Here are 22 ideas.
