Photo #3 seems to be about a NYC garden. Where do the very tropical tree ferns go in the winter? Hmm? Large plants take up square footage, so one had better have a well-lighted interior space for them to winter over.

Automatic watering systems will help keep your garden-in-pots alive if you don’t have someone to come in weekly (and more often during hot weather) while you are away from home on business or vacation.

Beautiful ideas. I would like to have pots with winter hardy plants. I live in EU. And I'm not so strong to transport heavy things, especially not every year. But my upper terrace in the 1st floor is so dull and it gives me no privacy. I think about winter hardy azalea japonica?
