Starting Out

Container gardening offers much more than just a plant in a pot. Get it right from the start and you will keep up easily and reap all the benefits of this fascinating sector of gardening.

Buying Container Plants star
Buying new stock for your container garden may be just the bit of retail therapy you need but these guidelines will help you look out for good and bad signs in the planted pots you finally purchase. Don't be in a hurry! Don't go cheap! Enjoy your choices, speak to those in the know at the nursery.

Glossary of Terms for Container Gardeners star
How do we learn about How to Garden? In many ways ... much like we learn about anything - by reading, watching, seeing, copying, doing, hearing and more. But sometimes some of the basics are missed and then we get stuck! Here is a list of explained gardening concepts and terms. Helpful? I hope so!

Green Thumb v Black Thumb Gardening! star
"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?

Keeping a Gardening Journal star
Keeping a garden journal is not an exact science! No-one is going to check if yours is neat enough; and anyway your notebook is a unique and personal garden diary which summarises your container gardening actions. It is a fine memory jogger, and an excellent record of all - start one today!

Review of Watering Cans star[offsite link]
Reviews of gardening tools.

Why Did You Start Gardening? star
Why did you start gardening? What lifestyle influences were there that made your interest in plants and flowers and pots become a reality? Life is a casserole influences, and while it is difficult to choose just one or two, perhaps you can remember something about what made you fall in love!
