You will find container gardening to be cheaper and less time consuming than regular gardening. When you water your garden, it leaks out nutrients, so it is important to start with a nutrient-rich soil and add something like Miracle-Gro Performance Organics Plant Nutrition. Remember to add or take out plants. If a plant isn’t working, take it out and add something new. You might want to add foliage plants to those that bloom to keep the container looking fresh over time. Water your garden consistently and consider using rocks, pebbles, or pinecones to top-dress the look of your containers.
- If your container garden plants aren’t looking so good, consider these tips to see where you might be going wrong.
- You need to fertilize your plants often to keep the soil healthy enough to support them.
- You should also rotate your plants over time, make sure you add lots of foliage, and more.
“Change out the soil every time you restart your container garden or add fresh soil whenever you add a new plant. Choose an organic, nutrient-packed potting soil, like Miracle-Gro Performance Organics Container Mix.”
