RE-Thinking Container Gardens

mini home garden

You know, most people think of something else when we talk about container gardening.  Made from living plants this creation by John Millman is an extraordinary work of craftsmanship and design.  I think every garden needs one! (especially mine)

Plant List:

moss from the side of a building

echeveria

hens&chicks

weeping rosemary

creeping thyme

a bonsai tree

dwarf mondo grass

kingsville boxwood

Combine creatively with black fine sand, rocks, little bamboo sticks, tiny pots, and a (hypertufa?) house.

But this decision has not gone unquestioned and I…
