Ready to jump into container gardening? It's a relaxing and rewarding hobby. Here are a few tips to get you started. Begin with looking at your budget. You want to know what you can afford because the containers, soil, seeds, plants and tools can quickly add up. Start small. You can always expand your garden later.
Next pick a location for your garden. You want to keep easy access and safety in mind. Your balcony, patio, deck, front porch, steps, entryway or windowsill are great spaces. Any indoor or outdoor space will work. Also, it's a good idea to have a place to sit. Why? You can care for your plants without a lot of bending or kneeling.
