Pots, Planters, and Window Boxes

Containers are important inside of the home, and we spend a lot of time searching for the right storage solutions. But they are just as important outside of the home, and the right container will make your gardening more functional and...more fun!

Who says you have to stick to planting things in the ground? Hang a few of these pretty enamel-coated steel pails and you have a little bit of instant English garden. The kids can even help check the indicator stick that alerts you to low water levels.

Now this Stacking Planter would really make gardening more fun! We love succulents because they're so easy to care for, and this container from Smith and Hawken really makes a statement.

The cool thing about this window box is that it looks like wood, but it's actually a moisture-proof vinyl.

If you don't really have a green thumb- maybe you just need the right container! Check out the rest of the pots and planters at Real Simple.
