Many years ago, people would tend to have large plots reserved to make home gardens. It will be row after row of vegetables and flowers which would look so great in bloom.
While those are really nice, we don’t all have enough space at home. And for those people, the solution is to have a container garden.
Although you can buy garden planters, the specific containers you use for your garden are less important than them having two features — drainage holes and enough space to accommodate growth.
“You’ll see plants in wheelbarrows, a shoe, all kinds of containers,” said Sarah Galshack, a Hall County Master Gardener, during a recent “Growing at Gardens on Green” workshop.
“You can really use anything for a container. Whatever appeals to you.”
