Gardening can be easier said than done. There are many factors to consider when growing your own produce – climate, soil, planting season, watering, drainage, harvest time, and pests. And then do you have adequate space and the time to maintain a garden? For those who would like to tip-toe into gardening, without the commitment of half of the backyard, or most of your evenings and weekends spent pruning, container gardens are a great option. Additionally, plants in containers are at a more comfortable level for those who may not be able to bend down to maintain a traditional garden.
