You can use almost anything to make a creative container garden. The size, shape and color of your container can dramatically affect the look of your finished container garden. To show this I took the same plant, a beautiful calibrachoa or million bells, and put it in several different containers. Some of the most interesting containers are made from every day objects - a white, modern trashcan, a galvanized bucket or a large colander. To get ideas for container gardens just look around the house and use your imagination.
