With high-rise options more visible than ever, container gardening might just become your best option!

Container gardening is when plants are grown in containers such as pots rather than in the ground. It is for urban areas where having an actual garden is not possible, and is space-efficient and mobile, so it can be arranged to fit wherever you choose to set up your garden. The beauty of this kind of gardening is that you can reuse old containers around your home, so it's budget and environmentally friendly. Container gardening is also great because it benefits urban birds!

Container gardening also adds versatility to spaces large and small. Plants lend instant colour, provide a focal point in the garden, or tie in the architecture of the house. Place them on the ground or on a pedestal, mount them on a windowsill, or hang them from your porch. A pair of matching containers on either side of the front walk serves as a welcoming decoration, while container gardening on a deck or patio can add colour and ambiance to these outdoor sitting areas.
