There are several ways you can use Giant Garden Pots, whether it be for container planting or for regular home gardening. I’ll share a few ideas with you. For container planting, if you have lots of plants to put in a container, this would be a great way to save space in the kitchen, or any room for that matter. Simply add a larger pot to the corners of your room, and viola…more plants for you to enjoy.
If you’re planning on container planting, do some research, before you buy the first container you find. You want to choose containers that will grow fast and healthy, and one that has good drainage. Also consider if the container has internal drainage holes, so your soil does not get too much water. If you want your plants to grow bigger and healthier, try using biodegradable materials for container planting. They will help your plants decompose faster and thus store carbon dioxide a lot better. A great idea is to use coconut coir for container planting.
If your garden is designed for container gardening, don’t over water, as this can drown your plant roots. So, add a shallow layer of soil or compost in the bottom of your container. If you plan on using soil, make sure it is not fertilized. Always use high quality potting soil, which contains plenty of nutrients. Plant several plants per container. Three to four inches deep is perfect, but keep in mind that your container garden pots need room for the roots to spread out.
For container gardening, you can easily do this by putting the pots on trays. Another option would be to put the garden pots on a raised bed. These are a more workable option for large gardens. Just make sure that the area is always sunny and warm. It’s very important that you water your garden daily, especially if you’re using large pieces of art or furniture made from wood.
Your soil mixture should consist of peat moss, compost and perlite. Potting soil mixes are available at most garden stores, but it is possible to create your own mix at home. Just mix equal parts of garden soil, bark dust, chicken feed and fertilizer, with the use of an old coffee pot. Water the mixture and let it drain for a couple of weeks. Add more plants to the mix every few weeks, until the soil has established and you have a nice quality soil for container gardening.
If you’re just getting started with container gardening, it’s a good idea to add some stakes around your plants. These will help them get some exposure to sunlight, and they’ll also help with root drainage. Keep in mind that the sun can actually harm your plants if it gets too hot. It is important to water the soil regularly, and to give it time to acclimate to the new climate. If your plants start to suffer from leaf diseases like leaf spot, you can easily take them to a greenhouse or container gardening store and buy insecticides that will kill the aphids.
In addition to having a beautiful and attractive garden, container gardening offers many other benefits. You don’t have to worry about tilling the fields or digging up the ground, and you won’t have to worry about weeds. Plus, there’s no more having to spray pesticides or herbicides all over your garden.
