I've grown many things in pots with success -- mostly (legal) herbs -- but the idea of putting things directly into the ground totally paralyzes me. Thankfully, Pinterest offers an abundance of not-your-average-container gardening ideas to keep things interesting and funky. Here are a few of our favorite projects (and a sneak peek into what's coming up on Pin Up Girl) ...
5. Pallet Gardens
Here is another project very similar the vertical garden, except it lays on the ground.
Either way you'll need a drill to make holes in the bottom to allow for drainage.
I'm planning to use one of the boxes for strawberries and I'll be sure to update you with my progress with this project as well.
This gutter garden is a really unique way to spruce up your porch in a functional manner. Visit aha! Home & Garden for a full tutorial and more inspirational photos.
2. Small Space Gardens
If you like to cook but don't like to pay big prices for small amounts of herbs, then you should consider a one-pot indoor herb garden by apartmenttherapy.

1. Reclaimed Tire Gardens
Finally, I really like the idea of using tires as planters. While there is no tutorial for this, I think the picture explains itself. Now we just need to get a hold of some tires...
Happy Container Gardening!
