Container gardening is not something new, it is as old as civilization. It can be traced to China, India, Egypt, Greece and Rome. Container gardening has been enjoyed since ancient times in countries all over the world.
No form of gardening offers more versatility than container gardening. Growing plants in containers makes it possible to garden where there is no yard or soil available. You can raise vegetables on a balcony or a patio.
Growing in containers in arid climates saves water, will help control pests, weeds and critters. It is also a wonderful way to garden if you have pets that like to dig. It makes gardening possible for people with disabilities. Bad back, old knees, in a wheelchair, it doesn’t matter, you can still have a garden. Your garden can come to you in a container. Container gardening is for everyone.
