Have you ever thought
about growing your own food in garden planters? Well don't be afraid
because it's easy to do and tons of fun. Here are a few tips to help!
We know, we know, everyone thinks gardening is
very difficult to do and takes tons of time, but we are here to tell you that
it's simply not true. Nothing comes without a bit of effort but what
you reap from growing your own food in planter pottery will far outweigh the
time and effort you have to invest. Think of it this way. How
much money do you spend at the grocery store? Do you know where the
food is coming from and what maybe in the soil that the food was grown
in? This is a major concern for fruits and vegetables grown in other
countries. Who has handled your food and what kind of pesticides were
used! All good questions!
So, we have you convinced
at this point! Good Deal!!! Now you are asking yourself, Why,
should I plant in pottery? Good question! Well, we are here
to tell you there are many advantages to using a container to plant into
instead of planting directly into the ground. First and foremost, it's
easier. Isn't that what everyone wants to hear? Well, in this
case it's true. Everyone young and old, fit or not so fit, handicapped
or healthy can plant in containers. If you live in an apartment or high
rise, houseboat or beach house, small house or large home, everyone can plant
into a garden container.
Maybe you have a home
with tons of shade or a patio that only gets sun certain times of the
day. You can move your garden pottery around easily with a pot lifter
or a pot caddy. You get to pick the potting soil to make sure that what
you plant will be success. If you have a small, space you want to
decorate instead of a huge patio than containers are the way to go. So,
here are the basic tips.
1. Drain holes
are best for plants. Use a saucer if you need too.
2. Make sure the
pot is large enough to handle the plants root system you will be growing.
3. Do you want
terracotta clay because it breathes and is best for plants or concrete
planters for durability?
4. Lastly, have
fun and select the look, colors, finishes that best meet your needs.
Container gardening is
fun, and with a few small considerations you will have a great time for a
little effort and price!
