Having a water
garden is a wonderful and fun garden feature in any setting. Not only can you enjoy beautiful water plants like water
lilies - for example, your pond will also attract some of nature's wonderful creatures such as frogs, dragonflies and
butterflies. You can also include goldfish.
say you don't want the expense and maintenance associated with a water garden or lily pond? Not a problem. You
can enjoy water plants in just about anything that will hold water - from a teacup to an old bath tub, half a whiskey barrel,
a kiddie pool or a plastic or ceramic container. Just remember to put the container where you want it - water is heavy
(8 lbs to the gallon) and preferably where it will get at least six hours of sun.
