Container Gardening Inspiration

Well, the Victoria Day long weekend is here in Canada and it normally marks the beginning of the gardening season.  I have already gone out and bought a bunch of annuals and potting soil for my containers and flower beds and I’m ready to get in that dirt!

Unfortunately, I feel it’s still a tad early to be planting as we are still experiencing some frosty nights.  For now, my babies will have to remain indoors for another week or so until it’s safe to have them outside 24/7.

In the meantime, here is some container gardening inspiration – a blog post idea given to me by my pal Lourdes!  Thanks again! I will be doing another blog post soon on the best tips for container gardening (lighting, soil quality, types of plants, placement, etc.), so stay tuned for that.

    Great post! Makes me want to some gardening 😀 I hope to be able to do some after I move back to Michigan in October. Even though I will live in an apartment, container gardening seems like a great idea! I’m sure we will have some type of patio or balcony where I can put my plants. 🙂 xo

      Oh definitely! Container gardening is a wonderful option for those living in apartments. It’s too bad though, as I some tropical/desert gardening in Nevada would be awesome! xo
