Starting a Container Garden w/ Planters
Starting a Container Garden w/ Planters by; Glenn Mast
Picking a location is important when starting a container garden. You could start your container garden by choosing a sunny spot in the house. Generally, the best places are going to be close to the windows. If the weather is warm, a balcony, porch or patio is an ideal location for container gardens. You can also use window boxes or planters if you do not have a designated outdoor space, but want to keep the possible messes that come with a garden out of the house.
Make your selections wisely. Not all plants can thrive in container gardens. Some plants require a more dedicated space for their root growth. While there are some plants that you would be better off having the professionals grow, there are plenty of other ones that will grow just fine in a container.
You can generally tell whether or not a plant is going to do well in a container by reading the package that the plant seeds come in. Most seed packets will say right on the bag whether or not you should use those seeds in a container garden. If you are ever in doubt as to whether or not a seed will grow indoors or in a container, you should feel free to ask the garden center associate for help.
