78. Types of Container Gardens
You can use many types of containers to grow flowers, plants, vegetables and fruits around and in your home. There are different container gardens, which are known as special container gardens, flowering container gardens, herb container gardens and edible container gardens. While you are can mix and match many of these types of container gardens to create that special look that you want to have on our deck or patio we are going to talk about each a little more in detail.
Special container gardens are baskets, planters and containers that are shaped to meet a collection that you have, a style of design that you use or a favorite animal that you just love. Special container gardens are used close to the home to reflect your personal style and touch. Special container gardens are also gardens that have been planted by your children as a present to you, or created by your husband to fill a void in your garden. Special treasures are special container gardens.
Flowering container gardens are also gardens that you have arranged and chosen as a place to grow your certain favorite easy to grow flowers. Sometimes a gardener will keep their special favorite plants next to the house to protect them from the wind, rain, and the animals that may be in the lawn. Flowering container gardens are also used to keep a favorite scent on the patio or deck for your party enjoyment.
Herb container gardens are used to grow your favorite herbs that you use in cooking and in baking. Herb container gardens are kept close to the house so you can go out and take a little clip when you are in the middle of cooking. There are many herbs that are very pretty and when they are kept close to the house there are many that smell great as well. Pick herbs that will fit your pot fully or you can use a couple herbs in one pot to make a full arrangement.
Edible container gardens are a combination of all the vegetables and fruits that you can grow in a container on your deck, patio or in your lawn. Sometimes when you are starting fruit tree you want to keep them in containers so you can bring them into the greenhouse for the winter. Other times you will like to keep your vegetables in a container garden close to the house to keep them handy to pick and use for dinners and lunches as the vegetables begin to ripen. Vegetables can make a nice arrangement for your patio or deck use in the largest containers so that they can be healthy and thrive.
