Still not convinced that you can be a gardening star? Here’s a list of reasons to try container gardening, no matter where you live!

Most people think that container gardening is only for apartment dwellers or small space dwellers. However, even people with a yard can try container gardening. It’s actually a smart choice because your back will thank you for avoiding the heavy labor of digging, pruning, and harvesting from the ground since you can choose to place your plants in an elevated container.

So, if you’re still asking yourself why should you give container gardening a shot, check out these reasons that will convince you to try container gardening, even if you live in a tiny home.

You Don’t Need a Yard

Container gardening is suitable for both small space dwellers and people with a yard, but you actually don’t need a yard to start a container garden. You can start your own container garden as long as you have a spot where you can place your plants, and your place has access to decent light.

You Really Don’t Need Pots

OK, you must be confused because it’s called container garden for a reason. What we actually mean is you don’t need to have matching pots to build a container garden. That’s one of the reasons to try container gardening. It’s fun painting old pots and eco-friendly too! You can reuse old plastic bottles or glass jars. You can also place your plants in old wooden crates or dresser drawers, as long as you drill drainage holes.

Unleash your creativity and help save Mother Earth by recycling and reusing old galvanized buckets and pots.

All You Need Is a Good Potting Soil

One of the reasons to try container gardening is you can simply use good potting soil and slow-release fertilizer for your plants to thrive. You don’t have to go through testing the soil and adding soil amendments to make the pH right for your plants.

Weeding? We Don’t Know Her

No room for weeds when you have a container garden! Good news, right?

You Can Move Your Container Garden Anywhere

One of the reasons to try container gardening is you can move it anywhere. Moving to a different place? Sure, no prob! Going on vacation? You can move it to your friend’s place temporarily. Seasonal light change? Relocate your plants over to the area where there’s more sunlight. Pretty convenient, huh? Plus, it’s a form of arm workout too!

Watering Is Easier

We all know that you only need to water plants when the soil is dry or the top inch of the soil is dry. The same rule applies to container gardening. You can also set up self-watering mechanisms or self-watering planters (if you’re too busy to check every week).

Growing Healthy Food

OK, this is one of the reasons to try container gardening. Trust us, you can be completely sure you’re eating organically grown veggies and fruits.

Cleanup Is Easy-Peasy

As a plant owner, it’s so much easier to clean a container garden because you don’t have to sweep any dead leaves or stems. We guess the only hassle part would be cleaning plants when you need to debug plants and take them in before the temperature drops.
