Not everyone has yard space for a grand garden. But a container garden is a great alternative for small spaces.
Container gardening offers portability and creative freedom that a larger landscape can’t match. Don’t like the location of a plant? Just move it! Plus gardening in pots makes light work of replacing summer superstars like petunias with showy winter annuals such as pansies.
Before you get your garden in gear, familiarize yourself with the needs of the plants you’re considering — water and light requirements, growth habits, blooming periods, etc. Selecting containers that best suit your plants will go a long way toward the success of your new garden.
Also, since your plants will be growing in a confined environment, you may need to water and fertilize more often.
