Create a Spectacular Tulip Show in Containers

The classic, colorful blooms of Tulips in early spring are often the most anticipated event for the enthusiastic gardener. However, many shy away from planting these early-blooming beauties because of hungry deer or limited space. This fall, try planting Tulips in large pots to not only protect them from hungry critters, but to create a spectacular show with little space and worry.

Lavender: A Treat for the Senses

Whether you have an expansive garden, or are gardening in containers on your balcony, most can grow lavender for heavenly fragrance in the summer months.

Recommended Perennial Plants for Small-Space Gardens

If you’re gardening in a confined area or in containers, it’s usually best to look for plants that are relatively compact as well as those that have multi-season interest. The following perennials are ideal for small-space gardens. They’re smaller than other varieties, they have attractive foliage, and/or they have a particularly long bloom period or bloom in two seasons.
