Container gardening sure sounds easy – just use a couple of garden pots, add some plants, then water and plenty of sunshine and your good to go. And, actually, it’s pretty much that easy – almost. Container gardening is also really versatile and pretty inexpensive when compared to traditional gardening. And, you won’t need a large area or years of experience to develop a successful garden using pots. Here are a few more tips to help you out with this terrific hobby.

The first thing you want to avoid is to start off too big. You should always start small and then work up to bigger sizes when you have a better understanding of how your plants will do. One of the big advantages of growing your plants in pots is that you can easily move the pots around. So if you start off with big pots full of soil and water, you’ll have a harder time moving them around.

Always check the bottom of the pots to see if they have any holes for water drainage. There should be a least one fairly good sized hole and most pots that are manufactured today will have one. When watering your plants, stop once you notice any water coming out from around the bottom of the pot. Also, be aware that uncoated clay pots will soak up water right out of the soil so additional watering may be required.

When choosing plants, try not to over stuff the pot with too many plants. Its important, however, to group plants that require the same sun, water and soil conditions or you’ll have many problems trying to keep them all alive.
