Over at Garden Gate Magazine we found this awesome article about making a fountain butterfly bush into a tree. Now, I'll be the first to admit that I don't know much about gardening, but I love the look of the end results of this tree, and the wording was simple enough that I had no issues following along with what they wanted.
So even if you don't know very much about gardening, this project might be just the thing to start you off on the right foot. It's changing an object from it's natural state of being to something more complex and more personalized, but it is done in a simple way that most people can master. It does take some time and patience, but the payoff is also pretty splendid and beautiful.
