Spring is coming to a close and it’s almost time for planting season, so break out your garden shovels. Even if you don’t have a big yard for a garden, you can still grow fresh produce and flowers with container gardening. If you have a balcony, or large back porch, you can pot your plants in large containers so that they still thrive outside. To choose which plants are right for your container garden, just think about what grows best in your climate, the amount of sunlight the container will receive, and your aesthetic preferences.
- Container gardening isn’t just for those with large patios or porches.
- For containers, consider items you have lying around, such as a large pasta strainer or fancy wastebasket.
- Some plants and flowers attract butterflies or hummingbirds, with others repel bees or wasps.
“Think about plants that grow well together. Think whether it will be going into shade or full sun.”
