The secret to successful container gardening is making sure you ask yourself the right questions about what kind of plants you want to keep healthy. You will need the right pot for proper soil and drainage. You will need to keep them in a climate that is proper for their needs. You can use almost anything as a pot but you will need enough room for healthy soil. Buy good soil, fertilizer, and make sure your plants get plenty of water.
- Buy quality soil instead of trying to use soil from your yard. You want quality nutrients for long living healthy plants.
- Choose a container that allows for proper drainage. You can use creative ideas if you want; just make sure they can hold enough soil.
- Try to make sure to water once a day. Over-watering is unlikely, but you don’t want to overdo it trying to save the plants that you forgot to water.
“Gardening is one of my favorite hobbies and has become such a source of happiness over the last six years. That’s right, it’s been six years since I planted my first container garden on the balcony of my second-floor apartment.”
