Looking for a way to grow your own herbs, flowers or fruit trees or shrubs but have no garden beds to plant into? You should look into container gardening.

Containers come in so many variations from the traditional clay pot, right through to today’s modern lightweight planters made from either synthetic or natural materials. There is a perfect pot or planter for every situation as well as plants well suited to cultivation in them.

Vertical gardens are also a great way to maximise your gardening area, even if limited in floor-space.

For some great container gardening ideas check out our garden recipes area or search ‘container’ in our blog.
