Generally we throw all the unwanted things like faded
urns, water cans, milk cans tins, barrels or dump them at the corner of
the room. It makes the room looks disorganized and also the mountains of
waste create chaos in your daily chores. But by blending your creative
instinct with these disposables you can deck your both indoor or
outdoor. These wasteful things can become excellent containers where you
can sow a number of desired plants and decorate it according to your
imagination. Here we have given you some ideas on container garden
designing. For growing plants in containers you need to
choose the right pot so that after the plant is sown the additional plant
care given to the container plants proves useful to them.
Selecting container types
- Don't choose container with narrow opening.
- If you are choosing plastic pots then be careful as the scorching
sunlight destroys it. Terracotta pots are liable to dry out quickly.
Glazed ceramic pots are the excellent choices but you have to dig
too many holes to drain out the water. The pot should have drainage
holes at a length of ½ inches.
- The containers made of wood are more likely to rot. But if you
prefer wooden containers redwood and cedar wood containers are the
best option. You can use them without painting them from inside. The
benefit of using wooden pots for container gardening is that it can
be given any size and shape you desire
- The size of container depends on the number of plants that you
will be growing. If you are growing deep-rooted vegetables small
pots are not very useful as it restrict the spreading of the root
and dry out quickly.
- In summer use light-colored pots as they will not absorb heat and
help the roots to grow evenly.
- Put the containers on bricks so that the water is drained out
- Keep the container away form the sunlight in the afternoon.
- Clay pots are full of holes and so the water is dripped off from
the sides of the pot. So keep a careful watch and see if the plant
is getting adequate moisture.
