Sunset Magazine's tips for how to create the perfect garden in a small space.


Trend is going away from big and overstuffed containers to a more simple, streamlined look.

Stagger heights in the container, as well as mix colors and texture.

Read you plant tag and plan for the eventual height of your plant.

Leave an inch or so of space at the top of the container for watering.

Use a container that's big enought to give your plant room to grow.
