Los Angeles Garden Show: Container Gardens

Yesterday, I showed some photos of the edible wall I saw at the Los Angeles Garden Show. Here are a few more pictures…

Several of the displays featured container gardens. Here are a few of my favorites:

This container garden was called a "Sweet Pea Tree" and was designed by Linda McKendry. Of course sweet peas do not grow on trees, but this whimsical sculptural tree makes it look like they do. It is under planted with strawberries.


This container garden was called "Vegetable Table" and was designed by Jane Barlam Designs. It was a wire window box filled with Jerusalem sage, strawberries and oregano sitting on a vintage table. It had a piped drainage system to catch the run off into a water can…



This display garden featured all reclaimed containers. Everything was found at the salvage yard. I loved the rusty steel box!
