Flower-filled pots, pans, and half-barrels add glamor to any garden, but container gardening can also serve a practical purpose. Container gardening is best for those who have little or no garden space. In addition to growing flowers, gardeners can also grow a variety of vegetable crops in containers on a balcony, in a small yard, or in the sunlight on their driveway. Basil, wedges, dried thyme, and other herbs are so much fun to grow in pots that they can be set up in a convenient place outside the kitchen door.

Container gardening adds versatility to both large and small gardens. Plants give instant color, provide a focal point in the garden or connect the architecture of the house with the garden. Place them on the floor or on a pedestal, mount them on a window sill or hang them from your porch. A pair of containers that fit on either side of the front walk-in can serve as a welcome decoration while adding color and context to outdoor seating areas such as the container garden on the deck or patio.

Bunches of pots

You can use single, large containers for outdoor decoration, but you can also arrange groups of small and large pots anywhere on the stairs, terraces, or in the garden. Bunches of pots may contain a collection of favorite plants - chicken and chickpeas or herbs used for ornamentation and cooking, for example - or they may contain annuals, dwarf evergreens, perennials, or other plants you would like to try. . Houseplants in the summer outside in the shade are also a beautiful addition to container gardening. Window cabinets and hanging baskets offer many more ways to add instant color and glamor.

Creating planted containers with a mixture of plants and offering unlimited combinations is fun. The best combinations depend on the plants that have beautiful foliage and flowers that are produced during the long flowering season.

Translated into at least one focal-point plant (thriller) such as goliath or multicolored leaves geranium, for example, with many plants pouring on the edge of pots - petunias, pagodas, creeping geniuses, or ornamental sweet potatoes. Finally, add additives, they are plants with small leaves and flowers, they add color and fill the arrangement all season. Good additives include salvia, verbena, ornamental peppers, and waxy piconia, as well as evergreen plants such as parsley or licorice. You may also want to add a tall plant like purple fountain grass. Add the batter or pile for a cross in a container and you can use a flag to add height to the mix. For example, an 18 or 24-inch container would require a total of five or six plants.

Keep in mind that it is easier to grow plants in large containers than in small ones. This is because larger containers hold more soil, which stays moist longer and resists rapid temperature fluctuations. Small hanging baskets are especially prone to dryness, and in hot summer weather, you may need to water them twice a day to keep the plants alive.
