Gardening in flower pots, or more recently known as container gardening, has become increasing popular over the last few years. Many people are now living in smaller spaces as in townhouses or on smaller city lots where space is limited. As well, a potted flower garden adds great appeal around a small water structure or a pool area. Front doors, back decks, and bare spots in the garden can all be dressed up using container gardening.

    I love the versatility and color containers can bring to a garden. If the soil conditions in your garden aren't right to grow something, a pot can make it possible since you're in charge of the soil mix you put in the container.
