How to Create a Dish Garden

Carefully water the dish garden with a long-nosed watering can. Be careful not to overwater—just moisten the potting mix. Never add so much water that the plants' roots are waterlogged or they will most likely rot. If the soil settles during watering, add in some more until it's level.
