    It doesnt really matter if you have little space or a lot of free space, container

    garden can stand as an incredible way of creating a warm and relaxing interior,

    an inviting outdoor and an extended living space to add wing to your outdoor

    innovations and gardening ideas.

    Melissa simply enjoys growing her own small tomato house. She loves growing a

    rather cheerful profusion of flowers in various containers. Yes, she loves placing them

    at the deck, patio or even at her kitchen window sill to add warmth and color to her

    interiors. Quite like Melissa, many urban gardeners have also carried the traditional

    ideas of home gardening to a whole new level with this new age concept of container

    garden.

    Gardening doesnt need to be restricted only at the backyard, instead with a nicely crafted potted garden, now you can turn your patio, deck, rooftop and even your

    window sills into lush and sweet smelling Eden. It doesnt really matter if you have little space or a lot of free space, the idea of growing plants in different containers

    stands as an incredible way of creating a warm and relaxing interior, an inviting

    outdoor and an extended living space to add wing to your outdoor innovations and

    gardening ideas. Of course, you are now free to utilize your roof top, your patio, your

    terrace and even your kitchen window sill to create your own home garden of potted

    plants.

    For those who lacks time or those with backache or physical incapability container

    garden stands as an easy idea of gardening without the hassles of traditional

    horticulture.

    Create your own container garden A quick guide

    Take it in writing, growing plants in container demand more attention than those,

    which are typically grown in the ground. This is particularly because the plants, which

    are grown in the confined space inside a container, to a great extent, rely on the

    gardener (on you) for all their growing needs. Although its not robust science, yet you need to remember certain essential aspects when trying to grow your own small

    tomato house or trying to get creative with your indoor gardening ideas.

  • You need:

    Well drained soil

    Right amount of supplemental fertilizer

    Adequate amount of water

    Just the right amount of light

    Sheer protection from extreme hot or cold temperature

    Use nutrient rich and well-drained soil mix for your pot garden. It is better to rely

    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.

    Happy gardening!
