Container gardening ideas for inside or out

If you have a small or shady yard, you may assume that creating a garden is simply impossible. But did you know that there is a new way of gardening that allows anyone to grow lush, vibrant plants and even fruits, herbs, flowers and vegetables?

It's called container gardening, and it involves using large containers to grow any kind of garden plant imaginable, resulting in bountiful yields of produce, herbs and other botanicals. You can reap a harvest equal to what you'd get via conventional backyard gardening. As an added bonus, planter gardening is low-maintenance, inexpensive and virtually mess-free.

Container Vegetable Gardening

Almost any type of vegetable can be grown in a container. Popular favorites include tomatoes, cucumbers, summer squashes and beans. As long as your plants get sufficient light, they will produce enough to keep you stocked with fresh produce all summer long – without the expensive grocery bill!

Fill the small planter with packed clay and pot your water plant. Then, fill the large container with water and a water fertilizer and submerge the small container inside of it. When you're done, you can add additional items such as fountains, ro...
