    Container Gardening : Container Gardening Soil

    Thursday, November 10th, 2011

    For container gardening, use a soil-less potting mixture that consists of peat moss, fine bark chips and pearlite to create adequate drainage and circulation for root development. Choose the right potting soil, as top soil is too heavy for container gardening, with helpful advice from a professional horticulturist in this free video on gardening.

        Choosing Fall Flowers for Container Gardening and Window Boxes

        Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

        You can replace and revive summer planting containers with fresh fall-flowering plants. Lowe’s shows you 5 colorful options for autumn containers and window boxes. 1. Pansies – Pansies have large single petals and come in blue, purple, maroon, white and yellow, as well as a mix of bicolors. These hardy flowers look great edging a container or window box because of their short stature and large cheery flowers. 2. Kale – Ornamental kale offers big, colorful, frilly leaves in white, purple, pink and green-blue. You need just a few plants to fill up a container or window box. Kales like the cool temperatures of autumn, and they’ll stand up to frost, too. 3. Asters – Dwarf varieties of asters grow 6 to 8 inches tall and are covered with fringed flowers in purple, blue, or pink with bright yellow centers. 4. Chrysanthemums – Chrysanthemums, or mums for short, are a fall favorite and a standout for containers and window boxes because they come in many different colors, like red, lavender, white, yellow, gold, russet and chartreuse. Mums come in double and single flowers, too. 5. Gourds and pumpkins – There’s no planting involved—just stack them into a container or mix them with plants. You can grow your own gourds and mini pumpkins, of course!

              Container Gardening – growing onions

              Thursday, September 1st, 2011

              This video shows one version of a container garden which I am using to grow some onions. The container garden, or garden-in-a-bucket, is a simple method to grow plants and vegetables when without a traditional in-ground garden, or to simply augment your existing garden. It allows you to mix specific soil and nutrition blends which may be different depending on the types of plants or vegetables that you are growing, and as such will enable you to optimize the growing conditions to produce a higher yield.
