Container gardening has been around for centuries and is growing in popularity. In some cases, there is no other way but to use garden pots for the garden in a multi-story house or apartment. The following is a list of considerations when planning to use garden pots in your garden:
1. Choose the Proper Material
Low-cost garden pots are made of various materials such as clay, plastic, and stone. Some of these materials are more durable than others and some are more elegant. How you use the pot will help you narrow down the possibilities.
2. Size Does Matter
Once you've selected a plant, you can decide how big your garden pot is. For example, a small tree or tomato plant needs a larger pot simply because its root system is larger.
3. Vary the Pot Sizes
Changing the size of plants and pots creates a garden with a more attractive appearance.
4. Group Plants Requiring Similar Sunlight In Each Pot
Pots placed in direct sunlight dry quickly because of their small size. Try to place them where they will get shade for at least part of the day.
5. Choose Plants That Require Less Water
Small pots tend to dry quickly because they can't hold a lot of water. Choosing plants that don't require a lot of water at first will make maintaining your container garden easier.
It is best to use good potting soil for pots, as it is specially mixed for this purpose. Potting soil is lighter than regular soil and holds water much better.
