This is my 4th year of container gardening. Each year has been a learning experience for me. And each year I have enjoyed this way of gardening more and more. While I don’t claim to be an expert; I am always learning.
For instances the one thing learned is ‘less is more’. Planting less plants and avoiding crowding will create more growth and a bigger yield. You would think the opposite is true, but truly no one likes a crowd especially plants. Room to spread out is the key.
Moving on to the Pros and Cons of container gardening. The pros are: no weeds to pick; the garden is right outside my kitchen door; and easier to control pests. The cons, well, when I find some cons I will get back to you.
There is something about getting outside, getting your hands dirty, and picking those first vegetables. It’s mentally healthy. This makes me excited for this years growing season and looking forward to this season’s yield.
I have 2 favorites when it comes to container gardening: the outdoor containers I use come from Earthbox. The containers come in different sizes and all the materials needed for perfect planting. My other favorite is for indoor gardening. This is my Aero Garden(s). This is my indoor garden for my favorite herbs and lettuces all year round. And a plus, when the plants get to big they can be transplanted outside.
If you would like to have a small garden and don’t have much space or even a good area for planting, look into these special gardening methods. I have not been disappointed.
Blessings and Thanks for stopping by
