1. Cheap: You can plant in any type of container- ceramic, plastic, cement, etc. Inexpensive containers can be purchased at a variety of stores, or you can make one out of something found around your house- coffee cans, large or small bowls or baskets. Plants, flowers or bulbs can be purchased in small quantities.
2. Fast: Container Gardening removes the burden of having to dig and til soil. Just add soil, plant and water!
3. Variety: Plants, flowers and/or vegetables can all be planted in containers. Container gardening allows you to choose the type of soil used and where you want to place the container- expanding your planting options that are often limited by planting in the ground.
4. Easy to Monitor & Maintain: Containers provide a smaller area to monitor, which makes it the perfect type of planting for busy people or children.
