Container gardens are for those of us who don’t have access to enough space to grow a food garden in the ground
…or maybe you move around a lot and want to take your plants with you.
If container gardening is your best option, then perennial plants would be a better solution than the vast majority of annual plants – they’re hardier, longer living, and in many cases make a very pretty pot plant for indoors or out. A few well established pots near the kitchen can be very handy if you struggle to find time to harvest an outdoor garden – particularly when it’s raining.
Fertilising and regular watering of container gardens is essential for healthy plants, and you might find you’ll need to repot your plants every 1-2 years to avoid them becoming root bound.
