This is such a great time of the year. The gardens are waking up, homes show better, and people are in better spirits.

April is National Garden Month. Even if you live in an apartment or own a small lot, you can easily join in the fun.

Container gardening is an easy way to add color to a small lot or front porch. There are many ways to create a container garden, and they can really add that necessary punch of color and curb appeal.

A strawberry jar makes a nice container for a garden like this, and you can even plant herbs in it for use in the kitchen. Ideas for a strawberry jar herbal planter can be found here. You can even make an herb wreath for the front door out of chicken wire and sphagnum moss – check here for instructions.
