Not all the great gardening these days goes on in flower beds and vegetable gardens. A lot of it is done in containers – the large pots, half-barrels, boxes and baskets that add so much to steps, porches, balconies and patios.
This is small-scale gardening with flair that almost everyone can enjoy, even the landless.
And thanks to a wealth of choices, you can make a container garden that reflects your own taste in flowers, their color, texture and shape.
Garden centers are filled these days with thousands of small, inexpensive annual plants that you can put together easily.
