Container Gardening - Your Gardening Solution When Space Is Limited






     If you are like many people all around the world, you love the idea of cultivating, feeding, and watering, your own garden. Afterwards, you want to be able to sit around your garden with a cup of tea and enjoying all that hard work, as the flowers begin to bloom. However, if you do not have a yard, it makes it all but impossible to create your dream garden.

So many people want to grow their own garden, however, they simply do not have the room, rather they live in an apartment building or a zero lot line home, which creates a problem with a garden.

Do not worry, there is a solution just for you, consider container gardening. This type of garden was designed for those without a yard wanting a garden, to have just that.

The great thing about container gardening is that you can use a variety of different containers. You simply have to use your imagination. If you are wanting to have a garden, but have no yard, you could create a beautiful garden with things such as cement blocks, hanging baskets, clay pots, or window boxes.

You could also use things such as cast iron tubs or wheelbarrows to take the place of a yard that simply is not big enough. There are so many options when it comes to contain gardening, it is only limited by your imagination.

While, you can use most anything for your container garden, you should avoid any containers that have been used to store chemicals, as well as treated wood. This could lead to the sudden death of your flowers and lead to failure of your container garden.

Of course, you will want to take the following into consideration when you are ready to begin container gardening, in order for it to be successful.

First, with any container that you choose, you need to ensure that it has adequate drainage. It may be necessary for you to create holes in the container to help this along. You should also make sure the containers are placed on a raised surface, not upon the floor, to ensure for the best possible drainage.

You should also ensure that which ever containers you choose, they are appropriate in size for the plants you choose. You want to prevent the roots from overgrowing the container.

If you are looking for fresh veggies, you could consider container gardening with vegetables. This requires a process that differs from that of flower gardening. Talk to an employee at a supply store in your area, they can help you in choosing the right containers for the vegetables you are wishing to grow.

Many people love container gardening because it provides you with a garden that is portable. You can move your garden anywhere you please, giving it adequate sunlight, if you have the room to move it.

Soil and watering are also very important in container gardening. Compost mixed with loam or potting soil will best serve the purpose. Either allows for proper drainage and growth. Any other type of soil does not provide adequate drainage and is far too heavy.

For container gardens, they generally dry out at a faster rate than other types of gardens. When container gardening, you will need to water the plant two to three times daily. This depends on where you live, of course.

Summary:

For people who love gardening but have no space to pursue their hobby, container gardening is the solution to their problem.
