Practical And Popular Container Gardening
Container gardening is particularly useful for those who have limited space to pursue their hobby of gardening. Container gardening is a great way to garden, no matter how much space you have. Even if you don’t have a yard, you can enjoy the benefits of having plants in and around your living space. Container gardening is simply a form of gardening that uses containers instead of the ground to hold the plants. Containers that are used for container gardening can be anything from gallon milk jugs with the tops cut off to terra cotta pots, plastic window boxes to half barrels. Anything that will hold soil can be used as a container for container gardening, as long as it has holes in the bottom for drainage. You can always make your own holes with a knife or drill if you are recycling something to use as a container.
When container gardening, consider using matching or coordinating pots to give harmony to your garden. You can use containers that are all the same color or made from the same material to make it look like all your plants go together, even if you have planted a wide range of plants. If you buy good plants, and use quality soil and good-sized containers, your plants will thrive without a lot of care. Container gardening is a great way to find out if you like gardening, or to express your green thumb when you don’t have a lot of space for plants or a yard to plant them in.
