In spring, most gardeners have a cluster of newly purchased plants waiting to be set in the ground. Here’s a way to make your new acquisitions an attractive feature until you plant them in containers or in the garden.

Set small, 3-in. pots of plants, like ground covers, into an old wooden soda bottle case. The dividers will keep the plants from tipping over, making them easier to water. Handles on the case also make it easier to carry the plants when you’re ready to plant. In the meantime, the case also makes a charming ornament in the garden for a few weeks at the beginning of the season.

Bridal wreath spirea

Truly an old-fashioned favorite, this shrub has appeared in many a hedge around an old farmhouse.

Radish root maggot

The radish root maggot can be a particularly rude pest in the vegetable garden. These pale larvae tunnel through the root flesh of many root crops including radish, turnip and other members of the mustard family.
