Container Planting

Container planting involves the use of an assortment of items in the home to grow vegetables or ornamental plants. Items which would otherwise be discarded as garbage can be used in your home garden.

Since plants are confined to a small, isolated volume of rooting media, water and nutrient reserves can be quickly exhausted. Therefore, you must maintain soil fertility levels, for container planting to be productive.
