Sun Seeker or Shade Dweller?

Before rushing to the nursery, consider where your future urban oasis will reside.

Is it a sun seeker or a shade dweller?

Observe the location for a few days to determine how much sunlight it receives.

Choosing the right containers:

Now comes the fun part – picking the perfect containers!

The most common mistake is prioritizing looks over functionality.

Choose a container with enough depth and width to accommodate the mature size of your plants, ensuring their roots have room to grow.

Aim for a soil reservoir at least half the height of your tallest plant, and prioritize containers with good drainage.

Picking Your Perfect Pot

Most importantly, have fun with the container selection process!

Let your personality shine through.

From classic urns to rustic clay pots, the options are endless.

Consider the overall style of your home and choose containers that complement it.

Creative Container Ideas

Think outside the box – literally!

Get creative with your container choices.

Upcycle old items like antique baskets, wooden crates, or even rusty wagons (with drainage holes, of course!).

The possibilities are endless as long as it holds soil and drains properly!

Container gardening is a practice of mindfulness, a way to reconnect with nature and cultivate a sense of accomplishment right in your own urban oasis.
