61. More About Container Gardening

If you are still considering creating a container garden for your lawn and porch areas, or if you have extra seeds but have run out of space in your outdoor and greenhouse gardens, you can learn a little more about container gardening here. Container gardening is easy and fun when you involve a little bit of color and some interesting containers in your container garden!

You can place your containers basically anywhere you want on your lawn or porches as long as you are planting the right type of plants for that sun or shade area. You will find that container gardens also keeps the kids busy when they want to pick a flower, plant a flower or water a plant, when you are looking to keep them out of your most precious gardens.

What kind of containers should you buy? The best containers to buy for your use are ones that you can put at least six to eight inches of dirt into, so that during the growing summer months your plants will have ample room to thrive and continue. When plants are root bound they will surely die off. Root bound simply means that they have too many roots for the container or the space in which they are growing.

Planting in a container. When you are planting greenery, flowers, shrubs, trees, or anything in a container you should put a couple handfuls of rocks, pebbles, or pieces of cardboard or sytrofoam in the bottom to allow the water to drain off the soil in the container with out washing your precious soil away out of the hole. Then you can continue and fill the container with dirt of your favorite mixture and adding your plants or seeds to finish it off. Water the seeds or plants when you first plant them, and then only as needed if it doesn’t rain on this container garden.

When you using containers to plant your garden or to fill spaces around your home, you will notice that container gardens do require a little more watering than your outdoor garden might. This is because the wind and the sun can affect the plant or flower easier when it is in a container than when it is in the ground. Just paying a little extra attention will allow you to benefit most from container gardens.

What type of soil to use in a container garden? Using a mixture of light sand, vermiculite, potting soil and possibly even peat moss or mulch will create the just right soil needed for your plants to thrive. Often the soil in a container garden can get very ‘hard’ because of the sun baking it when there is not enough water and this will choke out your garden.

What type of plants can you grow? You can grow any type of plants, vegetable etc in a container garden. If you choose to grow a tree, you can grow a tree, but of course as this type of plant gets bigger you will have to repot and move out of a container, but you could have it in a large container up to as long as three years!

Good luck in choosing what type of plants you want to grow and to fill in those lonely spots around your home. There are so many choices, but the end look no matter what choice you make is wonderful!
