3 Tips for Creating a Beautiful Container Garden

container gardensContainer gardens are all the hype this year – and for good reason! They are easy to make, easy to maintain, and even easier to start. This “garden in a box” is exactly what it sounds like – your favorite plants potted in a container and placed in a spot where they can flourish. A little TLC, sunlight, and water are all you need to help your plants grow. Are you ready to get started?

Consider the following tips to make a container garden:

Buy the Right Materials

First, you must decide what plants you want in your container garden. Your container garden can produce vegetables, fruits, or flowers – whatever you fancy! Once you decide on what you want to grow, research what that plant requires to grow. For example, tomatoes need a container with a good amount of depth for the roots to grow; herbs and lettuce require a shallow container with a wide surface area. Of course, all plants need sunlight every day and plenty of water.

Make Your Container Garden Unique

Your plant of choice will make the top of your container garden look beautiful. But, you can also make the container itself stand out! For example, choosing different containers (buckets, pots, crates, boxes, etc.) of all different sizes and colors will help make your container garden unique.
