There is a beautiful way to decorate your outdoor space by adding patios, porches and deck. Container gardening is easy and doesn’t require any special efforts.
All you have to do is to make sure you have proper soil for growing container plants, as well as the right space for decorating the garden in the way you want it. Container plants usually cannot bear the summer sun and require shade. They need 6 hours of sun daily.
Purchase only those plants that are proper for your garden area. Green spikes, marigold and petunias are great for adding container plants outside.
Place the plants inside the container, but choose well the best position of the plant. In case you already purchased several plants, choose to plant those plants which are rare. Grasp the plant at stem base, wiggle it free of the pot and press your fingers into the roots so to loosen the soil.
This is the requirement for better growth of the plants that needs containers. Watering is another important step when it comes to container gardening. The container plants need frequent watering at least the first two weeks. The typical container plants require more watering than the common plants, so make sure they are well watered.
