Container Gardeing

What is Container Gardening?

Container gardening is when you grow vegetables, herbs, and fruit in containers or pots as opposed to the traditional way of gardening in the ground soil.

Many people choose to use container gardening when they are limited in space to grow a garden. Maybe they don’t have a plot of land and only have a balcony or a small patio. Other times people will choose to create a container garden because there are many shadows where they can grow plants and they need to be able to move things around at different points in time to ensure enough sunlight falls upon their plants.
