Tis the season we starting dreaming of gardening – what don’t have much time or space to garden?
No problem – Container garden.
Container gardening is a great place to start gardening and easy to add if you are an experienced gardener.
For the new gardener, it allows you to learn on a small scale. It is often where I recommend people start gardening, especially those who feel overwhelmed by gardening for the first time.
Experienced gardeners (and all of us really) can enjoy the convenience a container garden can provide, consider…
… 5 Reasons why container gardening is a great idea:
- It doesn’t take much space
- You can move the containers to where the sun and rain are
- You don’t have a big area to maintain
- You can grow loads of food
- You can grow food year round
Lets take a peek at each of these 5 reasons.
Container gardens can be a various sizes and shapes and tucked into or onto most any place, making they great for small space gardening. Even if you have a large yard, growing food on your deck is convenient.
Live in a townhouse where the sun is limited. You can move your container garden around from place to place to follow the sun, getting more or less light depending on what you are growing. You can move them under the eves in a big rain storm, or under the sky if they need watering.
Many people seem to not have much time these days, so having a smaller area to maintain fits with many people’s lifestyles and still allows them to eat some food from their own place.
You can get a huge yield from a well planted container garden. Amazing really how much bounty you can haul in. You can grow pretty much anything you would grow in the ground in a container.
All those crops that grow in fall and winter can grow in containers too, so you can four season garden !
