Containers For A Container Garden
The container garden is enjoyable, satisfying, is good for the planet and can reduce your grocery bills. Having the right sort of container for a container garden is vital to the life and growth of the plant. If you want to grow something perennial, such as an herb bush, especially a large one, then you probably want to use a similarly large wooden container. If you are growing plants for more than just one season, or if you are growing them outside where they can easily be seen, then wood is particularly attractive. If your plant is large, or if it is in an especially visible location in your yard, then a wooden container would probably be best. While wooden pots tend to be among the most expensive kinds of containers, they are often very durable and long-lasting. If you use wood, make sure that it has been treated around the outside and not in the inside. If the inside is treated, you may find unhealthy chemicals leaking into your soil and infecting your plants. This can damage the plants, but it can also make you ill if you consume them.
Most people tend to use plastic pots for container garden, probably because they are usually cheaper than anything else. But it is important to keep in mind that cheaper may not be better. If you do not plan on container garden for more than a year, then plastic could work very well for your garden. But if you want to continue container garden after this year, or even if you think you may, then you want something more durable than plastic.
