Water Garden How-To

I was sent this wonderful graphic and I wanted to share it with you. 

If you haven't enjoyed a container water garden, then you're missing out!

  1. hey brenda, I use a few of these plants near our pond. I also love the idea of the mosquito dunk.cause nobody wants to get bit up all summer long!

  2. I have no idea how to create one of these so I really appreciate this. I plan to try several of these in my new-to-me small yard where I don't know what to do. It will never look as gorgeous and lush as your patio, but at least now I have an idea where to start. Baby steps....... Thank you so much!

  3. Perfect timing,Brenda! Next weekend I will be attending "SpringTime in the Garden" festival in a quaint,charming little old Florida town West of Orlando...I have so admired your container water garden and with this wonderful graphic that you shared with us now will be the perfect time to create one.. Thank You

  4. I have never heard of mosquito dunk. I have a little (very little) water hole in my flower rock garden, where two frogs live. I think they may be dining on one or two of the mosquitos for dinner in the summer. Hope the frogs come back this season, from where ever they hid out (in the Mud i suppose) Fingers crossed anyway..they really are pretty cute...

  5. Thanks for this info Brenda...I am also planning to try one of these this year...It is supposed to be much warmer this coming week so I plan to do some clean up outside!

  6. Very cool!! Do you empty your water gardens in the winter or is your climate mild enough that you can leave them out all year?
