Christmas Gift Containers
Gift Christmas Containers are great holiday and gardening projects and you know how it is, the busier you are and the more you have to do the more you get done and well too! Did you plan ahead perhaps? Many do and as many or more don’t, but whichever's the case, here are some last week fun ideas!
Climbers in Containers
Climbers are versatile plants which, besides their beauty, can have good use for us Container Gardeners. They cover, cascade, creep and curl for us on command! Want to cover an ugly surface or wall? Grow a wind-break or define a space? Offer a flowering backdrop to your planters? Use a climber!
Container Asparagus is possible!
Can you grow Asparagus in a pot? Well some would not want to even try but it is possible with the right approach, conditions and a lot of patience. Will the effort and results be worthwhile? I say yes and there are many who have had much success. See what you think and add this to your bucket list!
Container Care and Cleanups
The daily 'fruits' of our labours from our containers are a pleasure when we realise they are there for the taking in exchange for our gardening efforts! Only one container to care for? No matter, a deck garden clean up is a must! Maybe you'll find these tips and timely reminders useful.
Container creepers hide things!
Containers hide things like ugly walls or utility areas or provide a restful patch. How about setting up a pergola or archway entrance to your patio or front door? Containers are so versatile; one has just got to love their multitasking properties. Add your ideas to use them creatively, read on!
Container Garden Décor
Your flowers, containers, plants and edibles offer so much in your container garden – why not enhance their environment with other decoratives like tuned wind chimes or music or yard art or statuary? Maybe this will get your creativity going - once you start, so does the fun and you may need brakes!

Just moved into the city? Only have a small space to garden? Scaling back? If you answered yes for any reason then you will benefit greatly by signing up to this free weekly Container Gardening newsletter. What do you want your container garden to do? Check out your options here!
Container Gardening School Project
"Prove that Black Thumb Gardening does or does not exist!" This is the school project given to Tammy in Grade 8. She has to prove it by growing or not growing two starter containers, one pretty with flowers and the other edible. Why not join her, try the tub recipes described then visit the forum?
Container Seedling Tomatoes
Tomatoes are popular vegetables to grow in containers. They are easy if you just follow a few sound gardening principles and the yield is well worth your efforts. They like sun, good food, well prepared soil, the right variety seedling and the right sized container. Easy gardening and delicious!
Containers for Decorating Doorways
Stand back from any one of your entrances. What do your visitors see? Do you have space for a plant or two? Is yours an entrance that says WELCOME? Front, back, patio entrances? Door from your balcony into your home? Here we explore some good ideas that say ‘Step right in … sit right down’
