Why Container Gardens Make Sense Today

More and more of us live in cities. Our jobs tend to "uproot" and move, and that means our families must move with them. Space in suburbs and city centers is at a premium.

At the same time, the growing awareness of industrial farming practices, and what might be in the food we're feeding to ourselves and our children, has created the burning desire within a new generation to grow our own fruit, vegetables and herbs.

This is the 'perfect storm' behind the huge growth in this fun form of gardening. Ideas of planting a few pots of herbs, or a tomato plant or two, soon grow into more ambitious plans.

Before long, you're building containers to cover up your useless lawn space, and harvesting dozens of varieties of peppers, artichokes, carrots, salad, greens, onions, and delicious fresh herbs (try going back to those tasteless dried flakes in the jars after cutting your own mint or rosemary!).

Throw in some flowers, and a previously dead space can suddenly bloom into a brilliant, productive miniature garden, on your patio, porch, lawn... even your rooftop!
