If you've been hesitant to start a garden because you think your yard's not big enough, then container gardening is the way to go: You can grow herbs, flowers, apples, cherries, cucumbers, and even citrus fruits -- plus tons of other plants -- without using any land.

And the containers don't have to break the bank, either. These gardeners used a little ingenuity and treasures that other people would consider trash -- like this eggshell -- to make beautiful, functional gardens that you'd never know have their roots in the recycling bin.
