When space is an issue in the garden, container gardening is a great way to get lots of production from a little area. The bigger the pot the better, since veggies like lots of room to put their roots down. When the time comes to decide what pot use, plastic will hold more moisture than terra-cotta, although they are not as attractive. Hanging baskets are also a good way to get lots of growth from the extra room above the ground.
- The bigger the pot the better as large plants need a lot of space and their roots need room to grow.
- Hanging baskets are great for extra space and you can grow herbs, cherries, tomatoes, and strawberries in them.
- Make sure that your containers are in an area where they will get maximum sunlight but they will also be well ventilated too.
“Clay pots are usually more attractive than plastic ones, but plastic pots retain moisture better and won’t dry out as fast as unglazed terra-cotta ones.”
