pot LUCK

Almost any place can become a garden and almost any plant can be cultivated—even when soil, climate, and location seem to indicate otherwise. How? In decorative pots, urns, and tubs—almost anything that has a drainage hole. A vast array of plants can thrive in containers, from trailing ivy, cactus, and sedum to boxwood trimmed into a topiary and dwarf evergreen trees tamed by bonsai enthusiasts.
