Container Basics

Container gardens are extremely popular for good reason: They work with a range of plants and in a range of locations, from apartment balconies to big-scale yards. Crafting your own container garden is easier than ever. You'll get tips for design and care, as well as fresh plant ideas. Learning the basics is a good place to start; that includes buying containers and tending to plants in containers. If you don't have the space to include a dedicated vegetable or herb garden in your yard, grow favorite crops in containers -- either on a patio or in a window box. Containers are also a great way to showcase beautiful spring bulbs; here's how to grow tulips, hyacinths, and more spring-flowering bulbs in containers. In addition to using premade containers, you can also craft your own hypertufa trough; learn how with a DIY guide (as well as the best succulents, perennials, and alpine plants to grow in the trough). One of the more beautiful container gardens is a hanging basket, which adds color to porches, arbors, fences, and walls; here's how to create one that thrives all growing season long.
