The six secrets of a container garden
Six ideas for starting a container garden on your patio, deck or porch
When creating a container garden try adding a plethora of different garden flowers with varying heights and colors.
It's all about location, location, location when putting together a garden design, whether that be a traditional garden or simply a container garden. How much sun or shade reaches your pre-selected location will restrict the kinds of plants and flowers that will thrive in the space.
Be creative when choosing flower pots for a garden. Plastic and fiberglass are portable and lightweight for an easy transition inside, but maybe consider something more durable if it is going to stay outside all winter.
Use a mixture of peat moss, sand and store-bought garden soil when creating a container garden. Avoid using soil from the ground or garden due to the high risk of insects or pesticides.
Placing garden plants in a colorful flower pot is an easy way to cheer up a front porch or back patio.
