Just the right amount of light
Sheer protection from extreme hot or cold temperature

on a commercial potting mix with consistent drainage for growing plants. Make sure
the pot is weed and pest free. To be honest, gardening in container is definitely not
something very intricate or complicated. All you need to do is to plan beforehand and
then start by using the right type of containers for the plants that you wish to grow.
There is practically no dearth of ideas when it comes to the point of selecting the
appropriate container and you can actually choose almost any pot, ranging from the
huge clay pots to lightweight ones, from the window boxes, to the wine barrels to
create your own pot garden wherever you like.
Regular water and fertilize your pot garden to yield maximum result. Try to
make it a habit and include this in your regular gardening regime. Assess the soil
condition well before watering your plants. Put your forefinger in the soil and if you
feel that the soil has dried, water immediately.
Feed your plants well. Try feeding your potted plants with liquid fertilizer solution,
at least once every three weeks.
