If you need a small interesting mini theme garden you can plant a six pack garden in no time at all. It looks great at a party or on a patio or deck.
I use an empty six pack of pop that comes with the plastic holder they have to keep the cans together. I cut the top off the pop cans and rinse. When they are dry I put the cans back in the plastic holder and fill with dirt.
The cans do not hold a lot of dirt so I plant one small annual in each can. Quite often I choose Portulaca for a annual and the vinca vine perennial and mix the two.
If you poke a hole in the cans for drainage you will need a small tray to sit the six pack on.
I have used this on the deck, porch or as a centerpiece at a picnic. Kids love it at a party.
