How to start a container garden in a small space?

Home Improvement
Not everybody is privileged with big garden, but desire to grow fresh flowers or veggies or simply nurture greenery in the house probably everyone desires. Container garden as the name suggests, grow plants in the garden pots that fits in whatever size space you have. You can put these containers in balconies, terrace, kitchen windows, patio, and virtually everywhere you find it suitable.

Organic gardening is the best way to enjoy fresh and healthy veggies. Not everyone has a big garden to grow veggies or access to community gardens, but if you are interested and understand gardening well, you can grow many vegetable in your containers. Garden pots in Melbourne are available in variety of sizes and shapes. You can choose plastic pots, terracotta pots or make your own gardening container by your spare stuff like wooden crates, coffee bag planter pot, glass jar etc.

How to choose pots for your garden?

Garden pots in Melbourne are available in plethora of styles and types. You need to consider your space, type of plants and type of pots being used. Herbs can be grown in simple flat container or glass jars. For big plants like vegetables like tomato, chili, cucumber and others demand big pots, preferably terracotta pots with sufficient depth for growth of roots.

• In most cases, bigger pots in terms of width and volume are better for growth of plants. Plants like tomatoes and cucumbers need more space for roots to grow. Big pots mean easy to water and fertilize.

• The material by which the gardening pot is made of can affect how often it can last. Terracotta pots in Melbourne dry out fast, so you need to water it frequently. However, for better growth, terracotta pots are recommended by seasoned gardeners. If you use wood containers, always use rot-resistant cedar or redwood.

Important aspects of garden containers

Drainage is the most important aspect of container gardening. If you use spare stuff from your home to make your gardening containers such as wooden barrel, glass jar etc., you need to drill holes in the bottom of the container. For vegetable gardening, drainage is must.

Buy a saucer that collects water that drains out of the holes in the bottom of the pot. You can find different sizes of plastic saucers from home improvement shops or gardening shops that sell garden statues in Melbourne, gardening tools etc.

You can also buy wheeled platforms that you place under large pots to move them easily.

Grow veggies in container

You can grow your own food in containers. Although the yields are not as good as garden plots, you gain flexibility and can grow number of veggies without much effort. Vegetables like radishes and lettuce can be grown in containers with volume and depth. Tomatoes and carrots demand big pots because their extensive root network requires much space to grow.

Some veggies need occasional sunlight and shade, which can be given easily in containers. Some veggies do particularly good in containers such as Swiss chard, cherry tomatoes, fennel, dill and herbs. You can grow herbs easily in window boxes. Herbs like mint, basil, bay, thyme, parsley, cilantro, rosemary and oregano are well thrived in containers.
