1. Planting "pot in the pot"
Not all gardeners love to radically change the design of the site every new season. Of course, I want a change, but usually it takes a lot of time and effort. However, there is one small trick that allows you to change the landing sites when you want.
Just dig a few plastic pots into the ground and insert seasonal container plants into them. When the flowers lose their decorative effect, they can be easily replaced with new ones. So your flower garden will always be beautiful and elegant.
