Growing Sweet Bell Peppers in Containers
Sweet bell peppers are a garden favorite and very easy to grow in containers. Here are the tips you'll need to harvest a wonderful crop of sweet peppers right from your porch or patio.

Halloween Decorating with Containers
With the coming of Fall a lot of your containers will start to look ragged. You can easily dress them up for decorating your porch or entry by adding a few fall flowers, autumn bouquets of silk or plastic, and harvest vegetables. Here are some ways to turn your dying plants into Autumn Wonders!

Hanging Baskets and Pots
Oh what a choice! Oh how pretty! Oh what a relief the winter is nearly if not already gone in your neck of the woods. Has your spring sprung? Are you ready for a splash of colour or fragrance or easy gardening? Looking for an easily achieved new look for an empty corner? Here is an idea or two.

Herbs in Action - GINGER
A wow! in the kitchen, a wow! in the garden and a wow! for your health, Ginger is easy to grow and especially suited to containers. Pretty plants, useful in many ways and very good friends with many herbs or spices though go best with chillies and garlic. Do yourself a favour and grow some soon.

Herbs in Action - BASIL
Why do we grow herbs? For their fragrance, pleasure, their looks, the garden, for health, medicinal and home purposes and of course, to enhance our cooking. You are growing Basil in a containers not so? Here are four favourite recipes garnered from friendly cooks including my Granny. Enjoy!

Herbs in Action - CHILLIE PEPPERS
An herby bush or is it bushy herb? Chillies are favourites in any garden or kitchen. On their own or not, this wonderful herb is easy to eat, easy to use and it's easy to harvest your own organically grown crop right on the balcony! And for choice we're spoilt, from nought to meltdown in seconds

Herbs in Action - CILANTRO
Cilantro or Coriander - it doesn't matter what you call it. This versatile herb is easy to cultivate, tastes good in cooking, leaves, stalks and seeds are harvested and it even chases away flies and mosquitoes. It's a sunshine herb and likes cool weather planting. Grow some - you will be pleased!

Herbs in Action - CURRY PLANT
Grow something different - grow a Curry Plant. It's an aromatic herb, looks good, repels bugs and deer, smells spicy and sweet and like curry (nice I say) and while its effect in the kitchen is mild, the growing of this unusual herb is easy, low maintenance and low on water requirements too. Try!

Herbs in Action - LAVENDER
Many plants and herbs share their fragrances readily with us which makes our container gardening efforts well worth it. Besides the many other uses of Lavender, the pleasure we get from this exquisitely scented group of plants makes them a real garden favourite! Plant a container soon, it's easy.

Herbs in Action - MINT
Mint, a most useful herb and amongst our favourites is so easy to grow and use that it makes all the effort a real pleasure! Made a Mint Julep recently? Had some mint sauce with your roast lamb? Enjoyed a cup of refreshing Peppermint tea? It's all calming and healthy; and it adds fragrance too.
