1) Basil - "Best Wishes!"
2) Pansy - "Loving Thoughts"
Container Gardens can be as meaningful as they are beautiful.
Like a living tussie-mussie , plants can be chosen for garden pots by more than just their color or size. You can make your containers really stand out by choosing plants based on their legends, symbolism, historical uses or religious meanings.
For instance, a pot of basil at the front door means "Best wishes!". Couple that with pots of multi-colored pansies, which stand for "loving thoughts" and you have a very eye-catching and welcoming entry.
Hopefully you will find some fresh inspiration here for your container gardens.
