Container Gardening in your Home
If you didn't know before, you do now! Gardening is about more than maintaining a big garden. You can enjoy this wonderful hobby without having an outdoor garden. This seems contradictory right? Well, we would like to introduce you to Container Gardening. There are a large variety of vegetables, herbs as well as flowers that you can grow in containers and place them strategically around your home, patio and balcony to create a garden haven in small spaces.
The Antirrhinum, better known as a Snapdragon, is a beautiful variety that bees love! Madame Butterfly has a bright array of colours and long stems that make them ideal to use as cut flowers or in a large, beautiful container as a centre piece on your dining room table The unusually shaped flowers of Madame Butterfly is sure to stop any guest in their tracks!
Planting a variety of petunia's into hanging baskets can add a variety of colour to any small area. They also have the added advantage of being off the floor and take up virtually no space! Petunia's, Fuchsia's, Begonia's and the ever popular Impatiens (Busy Lizzie) are available in a variety of colours and designs and are varieties that do well in hanging baskets.
