How To: Create a Tabletop Garden
Create a potted centerpiece that brings spring indoors.
Create a potted centerpiece that brings spring indoors. Start by purchasing a small weeping pussy willow tree, which is available in many big-box stores in late winter. Next, gather the following materials. Line the bottom of the container with a sheet of plastic or set the planter on a tray to protect the tabletop from moisture damage. Cut cotton batting to fit the container and press it into place. Batting will hold moisture, so water sparingly. Add potting mix to the container and then position the willow off-center. Fill with mix to within about 2 inches of the container's rim. Next, snug other plants into place, making a colorful arrangement. Fill in between the plants with potting mix and top with bits of preserved moss. If you like, add miniature wire fencing for a rustic touch to your garden. In late spring, transplant the pussy willow tree into your outdoor garden where you can enjoy it for years to come.
