Everyone can enjoy container gardening. No experience is needed - no space is required.
Are you interested in improving the quality of your life? Spending time outdoors, creating something that adds beauty or practicality to your outdoor areas is a great way to relax.
Maybe you'd like to decorate an outdoor area so that your family will use your outdoor space more and you have a place to entertain.
Perhaps you don't want to invest huge amounts of money on flowers, trees or shrubs for property that you rent?
Would you like to enjoy fresh herbs and vegetables that you grow right outside your back door?
Or maybe you are an experienced gardener who needs an easier and more accessible way to continue the hobby that you love?
If any of these describe you, I'd like to share my favorite gardening format with you. It can be enjoyed by everyone, no matter who you are, or where you live.
No space? You don't need it. No experience? Don't sweat it.
Container gardening is the answer . . . . .
And everything you need to know is here.
Make a game plan to achieve your gardening goals
Produce edibles . . . vegetables, fruit and herbs
Learn the basics of design . . . create your best container garden
Create beautiful and practical balcony gardens with containers
Choose the best flowering plants . . . annuals, perennials, bulbs, roses and more
Anchor your gardenscape with trees or shrubs in containers
A pot or planter filled with flowers can create an instant visual impact.
Weeding is almost eliminated - my most hated garden chore
It's easier on the back an knees
Better accessibility allows senior or physically challenged gardeners to continue to pursue an activity they love
Plant disease can be spotted sooner and actions taken to treat it
Watering is easier
Plants can be grown that normally won't live where you do - because of climate, soil conditions, etc
Deer and rabbits won't venture onto outdoor living areas like decks, porches or patios to nibble plants. Moles cant reach them via roots or bulbs.
If you change your mind about a certain plant or flower - just move it
If you move, take your gardens with you
Few things give as much satisfaction as creating your own garden and watching it bloom.
Planting in pots or tubs or boxes allows you to do that and more - in less time and with less effort than in-ground flower beds.
