Container Gardening

Container gardening is a good way to garden when you are limited with space. There are many different types of plants that will do well in a pot. Just keep in mind that any plant in a pot will require much more attention than a plant in the ground. Because plants in a pot will dry out a lot faster than a plant in the ground. Plus, container gardening doesn’t give you near the amount of soil around the plants roots.  The more soil around the plants roots the better the plant will do. So, when container gardening make sure to use the largest container you can possibly get.

Greenhouse Container Gardening

When container gardening it’s great to have a greenhouse to store your plants in for the winter. Most plants will not survive the winter in a pot outdoors if the pot freezes solid usually the plant will die. Unless protection is used such as bubble wrapped pots or healed in pots. Healed in means buried in mulch or dirt temporarily for the winter months. Every year I drag a bunch of pots in the greenhouse for the winter and they always do just fine in there and I live in zone 6. I really like my greenhouse and wouldn’t have it any other way. I love being able to control things like temperature, moisture, air flow, pests and animals. By animals and pests I mean I can keep them out of my garden in the greenhouse. It’s nice having so much control over my gardening choices.

Container Gardening Tomatoes and Cucumbers

My favorite things to grow with container gardening are tomatoes and cucumbers. They really do well in the greenhouse and they just fill the place making it kinda feels like a small rainforest. It can get pretty hot and steamy in there sometimes but the plants love it. I grew a tomato plant that was over 16 ft long(tall).I have never been able to grow cucumbers well out in the yard but man they grow great in the greenhouse. I also grow strawberries in containers in the greenhouse. They seem to really like hanging pots. I also grow all my veggies starters in the greenhouse.
