Container Kitchen Garden GuidePrinter Friendly Version
Growing your garden in pots on a deck, patio, fire escape or balcony offers a cheerful profusion of flowers, tasty fresh vegetables and savory herbs to enjoy in containers of all sizes and shapes. Whether you have a little space or a lot, container gardening is an easy way to create an inviting and relaxing outdoor space and add enjoyment to the seasons. Your garden can be anywhere that gets at least six hours of sun a day; one of my gardening pen-pals grows her eggplants in big pots on the converted tugboat she and her husband live on! For people with limited time or physical capacities container gardening is a special source of satisfaction. If you are a cooking-oriented gardener, you'll find having containers of your favorite kitchen herbs close at hand is a real advantage.
