Container gardening is perfect for people with small patios, porches, decks, yards, or balconies. Be creative and use different types of containers such as buckets, assorted pots, hanging baskets, raised beds, window boxes or even a kiddie pool. You can plant in most anything that will hold soil and drains well. With the right drill bit, you can drill drain holes in most any container.
Turn your porch, patio, or small yard area into a lovely, Container garden! Have you thought about picking your own fresh basil to cook with, or growing your own tomatoes & peppers, how about some strawberries or blueberries? You can even grow citrus and fruit trees in large containers. You can grow most any edible in a container with little effort and time.
With the right lighting, great soil, healthy plants, containers, and fertilizer, your garden dreams can become a reality! Sunlight is very important, know where you get the most sun and at what times of the day, plants need at least 6 hours of sun to thrive. However, around here, containers can get too hot and cook the roots when they are in the direct, late-afternoon sun, so afternoon shade can be a welcome relief. There are other plants that need full shade, so be aware of what each plant requires to be happy.
