This tabletop water garden is easy to put together. Any bowl that holds water will work — including ceramic, terra cotta, concrete or glass.
If your container is stone, cement or terra cotta, you'll want to glaze the inside of the pot to make it waterproof. If the container has a hole in the bottom, plug it with plumber's putty from both the inside and the outside. (Glaze and plumber's putty can be found at a hardware store.)
For the garden shown here, place a little gravel in the bottom of a basin. The pebbles will help you seat and level the container.
If you don't have a lot of room to grow dwarf fruit trees indoors, here are two other options.
