Having a water garden is a wonderful and fun garden feature in
any setting. Not only can you enjoy beautiful water plants like water lilies - for example, your pond will also
attract some of nature's wonderful creatures such as frogs, dragonflies and butterflies. You can also include goldfish.
You say you don't want the expense and maintenance associated
with a water garden or lily pond? Not a problem. You can enjoy water plants in just about anything that will hold
water - from a teacup to an old bath tub, half a whiskey barrel, a kiddie pool or a plastic or ceramic container. Just
remember to put the container where you want it - water is heavy (8 lbs to the gallon) and preferably where it will get at
least six hours of sun.
