Container Gardening Recipe: Wild Indian Summer

I was inspired to create this container garden by the late season and the rich colors of fall. But the warmth of summer is still hanging on – for now. This garden pot appeals to the side of me that wants things a little wild – while also maintaining a certain sense of stylish decorum.

    I’ve never done any container gardening like this before, but I’m suddenly finding myself obsessed with all the cool recipes on your site. I don’t trust my own design sense, but now that I have some guidance, I’m definitely going to try to find some space in my apartment for a few little containers.
