Container Gardening Planter Ideas: 10 Fun Ideas for Flowers!

Oh how I’d love to have a beautiful overflowing garden of brightly colored flowers!  But, I might as well be honest, I don’t have a green thumb. Container gardening has always been more my pace. It’s just so much more…well…contained.  I do well with ‘contained’. I even managed to keep a basket of flowers on my front door alive last summer which was my first real gardening triumph. (Shoot for the stars, right?!?)

I’m not sure if it’s just a psychological thing, but gardening in containers just seems less overwhelming than tending to a large garden.You can make it as easy or as complex as you want.  Me?  I make it easy. Throw in pre-mixed soil from a bag. Water it.  Watch it grow. And, if by chance it doesn’t, move it to a better spot.  I’ve pretty much just planted flowers in pots, baskets or a window box. But the fab examples that follow have inspired me to try something more creative this summer.

.Being a mom of little boys, this last one tugged at the heartstrings, and I just had to share it.

For sentimental reasons, I think I’ll have to plant flowers in a rusty old Tonka truck once they’ve outgrown theirs.
