How To Build The Perfect Container Garden, According To Dave Epstein (VIDEO)

There's nothing quite like a spring afternoon in the garden. But with the weather still a bit unpredictable (seriously, some of us are still experiencing winter-like lows) bigger outdoor projects might have to go on hold for a little while. Instead, we're starting small with an easy gardening project that'll perk up any space. (Plus, it can be brought in on those unseasonably cool nights.) In the video above, Dave Epstein shows us how to build a perfect container garden that packs a punch with minimal work. You'll also learn the pro secret to a beautiful arrangement.

For more great gardening ideas, be sure to look through Tara Heibel's Plant Of The Week slideshow below. And be sure to let us know in the comments which plant selections work for your container garden.
