Now that spring has returned, it is officially gardening season and Paul Michael Company is currently bursting with a variety of ceramic pottery that is perfect for container gardening. Container gardens are a wonderful way to add some color to your front porch or your patio, but they can also create beautiful variety in your garden or landscape.
Celebrity gardener and lifestyle guru, P. Allen Smith, offers some excellent advice on his blog to help you create a successful container garden. Here are some of his tips:
- Make sure you choose the right size container for the plant you intend to place in it. You also need to ensure that the container has a drainage hole.
- Get soil that is meant for use in containers, and if you can match the type of soil to the type of plant that’s all the better.
- When watering your plants, water the plant at the bottom of the pot to reach the roots more quickly.
Choosing the right plants for your container is important for a successful container garden, but you should also consider the design of the container itself. Don’t settle for cheap plastic containers or boring terra cotta either; you can make a statement with the containers you choose, and high-quality pottery will last you a lifetime. Stop by any of Paul Michael Company’s locations to see containers that can add personality to your porch or garden.
