Hi, Well container gardening is a great way to garden, especially if you have to move a lot. Most any plant will grow well in a container. The key is to use good quality potting soil and water regularly. As far as plants and colors are concerned, that's really up to you. We have an extensive container gardening section on this website which should give you lots of ideas and plant combinations you can follow.
