I’ve met many people who like container gardening more than traditional gardening, and they have several reasons. You can put a container garden almost anywhere, you don’t have to pull any weeds, there are fewer pests to deal with, you can grow food throughout the year, and you can try plants on a small scale before planting more.
These are just a few of the many advantages of container gardening, which is why I recommend all new gardeners start with a container garden. But before you start, there are a few tips and tricks you need to know about.

Over the years, I’ve learned a few container gardening tricks that give me control over my crops and allow me to raise small batches of food in a limited space. You can do it too.” Follow the link below to keep reading.
