Garden Planters and Gardening Tools for Container Gardening
If your garden or yard is modestly sized, you can still grow plants and vegetables in garden planters and containers. Starting a container garden is easy with the help of essential gardening tools and accessories. You can grow beautiful flowers, vegetables and herbs in attractive containers with these basic gardening tips to plant and care for your garden.
Gardening planters are available in different materials so you can choose ones that suit the needs of the plants you want to grow. Stoneware and concrete planters are good choices as they help to maintain soil temperature and moisture. These planters are also quite heavy so they are perfect for balancing tall plants and trees. Metal gardening planters tend to heat up so they are great for planting vegetables for the winter. The plants in metal planters need frequent watering as the heat tends to dry the potting soil. Plastic planters can be a better alternative as they insulate the soil and protect it from frost in winter. Choose plastic gardening planters with faux finishes to give them the look of beautiful terracotta planters. Herbs can be planted in small ceramic or plastic pots and kept on the kitchen windowsill or in raised beds in the garden. All planters, whether for vegetable or herbs, should have drainage holes on the underside for draining excess water. Choose vegetables and flowering plants for your container garden depending on the weather conditions in your area. Cucumbers, potatoes, beans and carrots are some vegetable varieties that can be planted in containers. Flowering plants like roses, petunias and dahlias are good choices for container gardens. Herbs such as cilantro, basil and chives can be potted in small pots that are excellent when placed on your windowsill or tabletop. Tend to your container garden with the right gardening tools such as watering cans and pruning shears. Watering cans with oval roses can be used with planters and containers as the water trickles slowly from them and doesn’t wash out the potted soil in the planter. Choose small pruning shears to snip dead foliage or infected branches. Plants such as tomatoes often need support to grow and flourish so include gardening supplies like twine, sticks and yarn to tie the plants and prop them up. Garden knives make for essential gardening tools that can be used for cutting twine and plant ties, opening bags, plant propagation, opening up plant root balls, and general garden use. Container gardening can be a rewarding experience when you follow these simple tips and ideas.
