These are just the sweetest.

These guys are planted in an old metal slide tray. I took the top off and removed some of the hardware. It was the perfect thing to make this centerpiece. There are no drainage holes in the bottom since it'll always be inside and we can regulate how little water it gets.

Tim's Tips:

1. Contrast. Pick plants with contrasting size, texture and color, they'll play off each other and keep the eye moving
2. Non-living object. I threw in an old trailer hitch ball I found in the street. Lots of gardens use large stones or old wood. It adds a bit of visual interest and steps the aesthetic up a notch.
3. Finishing Touches. The white rocks make everything pop and look way better than dirty ol' dirt.
