What is Container Gardening?
Simply put, container gardening is the practice of growing plants of all kinds exclusively in containers instead of in the ground. Container gardening is popular for city and apartment-dwellers who may not have the yard space or nutrient soil to successfully grow fruits, vegetables, ornamentals, and herbs in the ground.
This small space gardening trick also makes it possible to grow herbs and plants indoors all year round, especially for those who live in gardening zones prone to extreme weather changes or gardeners looking to start a garden on a tight budget. Container gardening is a great way for older or physically disabled individuals to garden without the need to bend down or dig up solid earth, making it a universally friendly gardening style all can benefit from and enjoy from practically any location.
Container Gardening Tip: Use a High-Quality Organic Soil
For your most successful container gardening experience, we recommend using high-quality, organic container gardening soil to support your plants. For instance, the Kellogg Garden Organics™ Raised Bed Soil & Potting Mix is a ready-to-use container gardening soil specially formulated for container plants, with added organic nutrients from kelp meal, poultry manure, and earthworm castings.
Similarly, the Patio Plus Premium Outdoor Potting Mix is a ready-to-use soil cultivated with aged recycled forest products and other organic ingredients for bigger, brighter plants guaranteed. Add some sunlight and water, and your container plants will be blooming before you know it!
