This week, we present an encore episode that’s all about container gardening. 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.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned over the years of traveling to so many different gardens is that you don’t need a whole lot of space to grow delicious, organic produce. In fact, all you need is some sort of container.
One of the biggest advantages of growing in containers is that it gives people with little or no space some soil in which to grow food.
Gardening in containers allows us to grow in even the smallest of spaces, but it can also give those of us with large gardens more options when we just need a spot filled or have an unusual area.
From selecting the most appropriate container to choosing the right soil to creating that magical plant combination, Joe shows you recipes for successful container gardening no matter how small or large the space.
Follow along as Joe takes us around the GGW garden and gives some great suggestions for container options.
Be sure to check out the resources below for even more container gardening learning.
