Filling your outside space with potted plants

Posted on January 27, 2021 at 2:58 pm

If you want to take up some gardening or want to add some life to your outside area, you may decide to do container gardening. This is essentially creating beautiful areas of the garden using potted plants rather than planting them in the ground. This type of gardening is perfect for those that have a small garden or are renting somewhere temporarily. It is also great for those that are not great at gardening and just starting out. It allows you to love plants around without having to disturb them which can be great if you need to change the layout of your outdoor space from time to time.

Adding potted plants and hanging baskets really can transform an area and add a touch of beauty to any space. If the plants die it is easy to take them out of the pots and plant something else. You may decide to go for a certain colour scheme one year and then the following year change the scheme.

Most people have container plants on their patios or decking. This allows you to keep them near to where you can see or your seating areas, allowing you to keep an eye on them. It often means that you check on them more regularly than if they were planted directly in to the ground.
