With the threat of frost now gone, it's the perfect time to plant a container garden. Choose colorful cool-season annuals like pansies and snapdragons, as well as ornamental grasses and vinca vines. DIYers of all ages can make an afternoon project out of it by crafting a window box from wooden boards, or painting a terra-cotta pot to match your home's exterior. Remember, because of their small sizes, container gardens require more frequent waterings than garden beds, so go ahead and give yours a good soak whenever the soil feels dry to the touch.
