Here’s why: container gardens and hanging baskets are the perfect solution for small spaces, you can experiment with new plant combinations, and they’re a low-maintenance and fool-proof (read: super easy) undertaking for beginning gardeners. Last but not least, you can create a ton of beauty in a tiny pot.Container gardens let you enjoy a garden even when space is limited. Some ideas: Use hanging baskets to add color to a tiny balcony or use potted plants to turn your patio into a leafy haven. For the gardener with a black thumb, start with a mix of succulent potted plants. They survive both drought and heat and practically take care of themselves.
Many plants grow better in containers than they do in the ground! Window boxes also give you the freedom to add loads of charm with minimal upkeep. You can use a variety of flowers in your window boxes (think geraniums, delphinium, violet African daisies) or pack a lot of potted plants like holly fern and ivy into one large window box for maximum impact. These gardens may be small but they pack a big punch.
