The plants in a garden mostly grow in the ground, but garden planters grow plants that give the garden a third dimension. Garden planters include hanging planters that grow trailing vines and big stone pots to grow bonsai trees.
Garden planters let the gardener add something extra to the garden. The planters may have flowers growing in a controlled space, or small shrubs that don't need deep soil. Choose a decorative planter that doubles as a garden ornament.
