3. Ornamental Avocado Containers
I came across a row of container trees in someone’s garden the other day that were really cute but what were they? They had a lush tropical look, clean, thick stems (rather than fat trunks) and thick glossy wide ovate leaves that left the surrounding garden bed dappled. I just had to find out more!
4. Herb Tea – Grow your Own
Most of us enjoy a cup of herb tea now and then, if not every day. It is so easy to grow your own herbs and most can be used fresh or dried. When growing your own you can also make your own special concoctions. Here are instructions for growing, harvesting, drying and brewing your own herb teas.

It’s easy to fall in love with Lewisia ‘Elise Mixed’. This low-growing, hardy, sun-loving, flowering succulent will make you smile. It grows in all sorts of places both indoors and outdoors. Containers will look rich, and rock gardens, crevices and pavers will love their company. Ooh la la!
6. Creepers Hide Things!
Containers hide things like ugly walls or utility areas or provide a restful patch. How about setting up a pergola or archway entrance to your patio or front door? Containers are so versatile; one has just got to love their multitasking properties. Add your ideas to use them creatively, read on!
7. Composting for Containers
Even if you have a very small space for your garden, you can still make your own compost. Composting doesn´t have to mean large piles of refuse which you turn and move with a pitchfork, it can be accomplished in a small area, with your kitchen scraps and garden trimmings. Here´s how.
8. Why Garlic?
Garlic is one of those vegetables that everyone can grow and that everyone should grow - it is so healthy and crammed with vital minerals and it seems crazy to suggest that a clove of garlic swallowed whole a day will help keep the doctor away ... sorry apples! If you haven't grow it yet please try!
9. Creating Calm
Believe it or not but anxiety, and not obesity, is becoming the world’s number one health issue. Much has been written on stress but it seems that more is necessary – as everyone is affected.
Why not follow the advice that comes from the 2018 Garden Trends Report from the US Garden Media Group?
10. Potato Pots
There is nothing like the taste of vegetables harvested fresh from your efforts, and the nutty, creamy, moreish flavour of potatoes tops our list. Coming in all shapes and sizes they are easy to grow, and this kind and humble tuber just wants good soil, regular watering and sunshine. Mash anyone?
