Container gardening is an amazing way to bring flowers and vegetables to your home if you don’t have an actual garden. Even if you do, container gardening is definitely more of an artistic way to showcase your plants as you can mix and match the vessels, creating an eclectic vibe.
If you’re thinking of starting a container garden, we’ve got the perfect video for you. In the video above, you’ll learn the basics of creating the perfect garden from HGTV’s Ahmed Hassan.
Hassan tells us the first thing we must do is pick our containers. You need to make sure your planters have good drainage. One small hole will not cut it. If you have your heart set on a container that doesn’t have any form of drainage, you can simply drill holes into the bottom so it can work.
Then, it’s on to picking out your soil. Make sure you use potting soil, as dirt will not be effective.
Finally, time to start picking the plants! Hassan suggests going with one tall plant, one medium plant, one small plant and one plant that will fall out of the container, like a vine.
It’s important to remember that once you’re done designing your garden, that you make sure your pot is elevated enough to allow the drainage to actually work.
