GROW PLANTS IN CONTAINERS

Nothing saves space like a good pot. Container gardening is perfect for growing vegetables, annual flowers, perennials flowers and even shrubs and trees.

Make sure you choose the right size container for your plants. Larger pots are good because you can grow multiple plants in one pot. However, they are hard to move around and store. One suggestion is to use containers with casters or buy a portable caddy to move your pots.
