Winter is tough on gardeners. Most perennial herbs are dormant. It is too early here in Maryland to start our seedling for the spring. When my Southern Living magazine arrived, I scanned the table of contents for the container of the month article. This months issue has an informative article on air plants. Air plants grow with out soil and are great for container gardens. This plant is perfect for people who live on boats or need low maintenance house plants. These plants are great for terrariums. There are numerous website that offer containers and plants but I found shopterrain.com to be the best in quality. They offer projects of the month and provide instructions and the necessary supplies to complete the project.
You can create winter gardens with no mess. Do you have a container garden idea that you would like to share?
