Plants for Container Gardens

You’ve got a running list of garden tricks, pots and tools. And so you just need the plants. Again, a word of caution: resist loading your car to the brim with ferns and bamboo shoots; start with a few of your favourite things—pansy and marigold seeds and rosemary and coriander. And then in a month or so, you can sprinkle some broccoli seeds. Thousands of types of container plants exist, and the following information is by no means exhaustive, though it should give you a solid sense of what types of plants with which you could start.

Again, consider your climate and garden layout. Read the directions on seeds packets. Ask questions at your local nursery. Submit inquiries online to your virtual nursery or favorite gardening website that helps you to discover whether or not nemesia plants enjoy the company of violas (they do).

We have many different pages consisting of links to different flowers, herbs, and other plants that are great for container gardening. And don’t miss this site with organic gardening tips and a guide to growing many herbs, fruits and vegetables.
