Container Gardening

Container gardening is quickly becoming one of the more popular ways to garden. This increase in popularity of container gardening is directly related to the increase in the number of elderly gardeners, as these people want to maintain their gardening passion while managing their limited mobility. Also, container gardening is seeing an increase in popularity due to the number of people living in homes and in areas that have little to no space for even a modest garden. Regardless of why you are doing it, let’s look at how you can maximize your container gardening experience by planting a perennial container garden.

If this is going to be your first container gardening experience, or you have had limited success with this type of gardening in the past, you would be wise to plant perennials. A perennial container garden is one that will come back year after year because these types of plants can grow in the same container with the same soil for up to six years in some cases. Not to mention that this is also a great gardening idea because perennials ad tremendous color to your landscape.
