Ok so now it's time for a million questions. I really really really want one of these. I was planning on doing a container garden for my kitchen to grow herbs in, and figured, why not make it amazing like this!?!?!

So first of all, do you have any updated pics, cause I would love to see the waterfall.

Secondly, what sort of plants did you use? Is the maintenance of the garden difficult? Did you layer rocks in the bottom? What types of plants did you use?

Thanks in advance, I know I am really asking a lot! But I would love to steal this idea use the inspiration you've given me.

Okay, I know that this is COMPLETELY off topic, but I've wanted to know for a very long time how people do the line through text as shown above in "steal this idea".  Can anyone help?  Please don't beat me up too badly for straying from topic of post!  Thanks much folks!

Also, I would like to add another vote for updated pics of a waterfall!  Smiley

you just type [ s ] and [ / s ] around the things you want to put the line through... well minus the spaces cause otherwise it wouldn't have shown up at the symbols it would've just shown up as a line. LOL.

Hi ALL! Thank you so much for all of the responses! The tub is a big was tub from home depot, and all I did was drill some holes in the bottom for drainage- rocks might be a good idea, too, but i wanted to bea able to move it, so that would have been WAY too heavy! I just used various herbs, the same ones I grow each year- rosemary- makes a great tree (and can come inside for the winter, as it is a tender perennial)! Chive, parsley, sage, I also used various types of thyme and rosemary for "ground cover" as well as purple allysum (not edible) to edge the little pathways, hen and chicks (don't eat these either) and african daisys (again, don't eat!) The upkeep is pretty simple, unfortunately the garden didn't get as much sun as I wanted, so many of my herbs this year didn't so as well as I had hoped. Full sun works best, and containers dry out pretty quick, so check frequently. I used miracle gro moisture control potting soil and it worked well. Also, use your herbs, or their growth gets out of control (I sort of have a monster parsly plant right now!) I recently have been doing some fall cleanup out there so I will take a picture soon. Thanks again everyoneGrin
