Container gardening
(patios, balconies, hanging baskets, window boxes)


Even if you don't have a garden, you can still grow many types of plants, including food, in containers on a patio or balcony.

Container growing means paying attention to a few different things than when you grow plants in the ground. Containers are artificial environments, and you can set them up in all different ways to suit all different types of plants. The important thing is to match each plant well with its container conditions.

Knowing how to get your containers right can be hugely rewarding as you'll be able to grow all kinds of things you maybe never thought about, in all kinds of places.

From choosing the right types of containers and potting soils, setting up drainage systems, positioning, choosing and matching companion plants, a Gardening Services provider will be able to reveal a world of successful container gardening than can transform your home. Use the "Gardening Services" search box to find out who's available in your local area.
