If you’re not sure how to design a container garden, feel free to dive right in. Much of the fun of playing with containers is that there are so many different ways to use them. And the pot’s portability makes it easy to correct poor placement. No matter where you live, containers can add pizzazz to the ordinary, create color and pattern against a blank wall and provide high points in the landscape.
Planting a container garden is an easy way to garden. Gardening in pots requires less time, space and energy than planting in the ground and is just as much fun. When it comes to plant material, the only limitation is your budget. As for the planters themselves, you’ll find pots of all sizes, shapes and materials, along with less conventional containers at garden centers, antique stores and hardware stores. After all, a container can be anything that holds soil and provides drainage.
