The container garden is an excellent alternative to traditional horticulture!

After years of fending off marauding deer and rabbits in my large vegetable patch,and spending precious time battling the unpredictable elements, I have become a avid devotee of the container garden!

Container gardening offers the ability to grow flowers, herbs and vegetables in an absolutely controlled environment that is easier to protect from hungry wildlife and inclemate weather.

Since the containers are just outside the door, it’s easy to go straight from harvest to the table! This is especially handy for culinary herbs which tend to lose their pungency after cutting.
