Over the years we have talked a lot about edible gardening and people all over the country growing food in many unusual places. We have seen many random places, but one thing we know for sure is you do NOT need a whole lot of space to grow delicious, organic produce. In fact, all you need is some sort of container.
There are a lot of advantages to growing food in containers. The most obvious of course, is that it gives people with little or no space some soil on which to grow food. Gardening in containers allows us to grow in even the smallest of spaces, from places with no soil to large gardens that may just need a spot filled or have an unusual area.
In this episode of Growing a Greener World, Joe takes us around the GGW garden and gives some great suggestions for container options. We can all appreciate the beauty of colorful containers of plants and flowers to dress up any space.
As simple as potting up a few plants can be, the best arrangements are achieved through techniques professional designers use to create stunning combinations. From selecting the most appropriate container, to choosing the right soil, to creating that magical plant combination, we’ll show you recipes for successful container gardening no matter how small or large the space.
