Re: trough planting


Well I guess you can make them any size or shape you like, but for me
I prefer something small enough to move fairly easily. My round trough is
probably about 14" diameter and 5" deep.  I'm planning, hoping, to
make a couple rectangular ones this summer. I suppose that pots
would work just as well but I think the troughs probably have better
drainage, and they have a different look to them.
