container gardens

Last weekend I made 2 container gardens.

The first was a succulent container garden in a swan pot I have had from Anthropologie.
I planted the small succulents I have had for a while in it along with a new larger one I got.
I filled in around the succulents with some reindeer moss.
I love the way all the greens work together.

My second garden is a herb container garden.
Here are the plants before.
On the left is mint, the middle back is rosemary, the back right is boxwood basil,
in front of that is sweet basil and the very front is cilantro.

I first filled the blue pot my mom gave me with rocks, to help with drainage.

Next came the soil, I used Miracle Grow organic soil (no chemicals for my herbs!)
