Natural Gardening In Flower Pots

If you don’t have a lot of space for a regular garden, or you want to start living a healthier lifestyle, natural gardening in flower pots is a great solution. You can grow a wide variety of vegetables and herbs in containers, and they will be just as fresh and healthy as if you grew them in a traditional garden.

OMG! Have you seen the price of fresh fruits and veggies at the grocery stores here lately? They are awful and disgraceful.

And besides that, none of the fruits or vegetables at the stores near me look very good either. For the last several months, it has been very hard to find any good-looking fresh fruits and veggies. So I have decided that flower pot gardening is the way to go for us.

Flower Pot Gardening Is A Great Option For People With Rocky Soil

We just bought our property about 9 months ago, which is out by the Tennessee river countryside. It is just me and my 16-year-old daughter. So when we first bought the property, we had to cut down a whole heap of trees to clear the right of way out for the power company to set our electric pole.

Now the guy who came out and cut the trees down, just left all of the mess laying on the ground. And when this happened, I am shaking my head and thinking, now who is going to clean up all these trees and brush? Well, who do you you think is going to have to clean it up?

So I guess it will just be laying there until I have the free time to do it, which will probably be never. I already have 5 million other jobs and duties to fulfill everyday, what’s one more?

So then the next day, I tried to dig a whole to plant my Monrovia Butterfly Bush, and low and behold, the darn ground out there is nothing but rocks, rocks, and more darn rocks. So I gave up trying to dig any holes on this rocky property. It is ridiculous and do not have the energy to be fighting with rocks all day just to get a darn flower planted.

As you can see, this is how I decided to start natural gardening in flower pots. I will post updates as my veggies and herbs continue to grow and get bigger.

How To Start Your Own Flower Pot Garden

There are a few things to keep in mind when natural gardening in flower pots. First, make sure that you choose the right size pot for the plant you want to grow. Smaller plants will need smaller pots, and larger plants will need larger pots. Second, make sure that the pot has drainage holes so that the water can drain out. Otherwise, the roots of the plant will rot. Third, use good quality potting soil so that the plants can get the nutrients they need. Fourth, water the plants regularly, and fertilize them every few weeks. With a little bit of care, you can grow healthy and delicious vegetables and herbs in flower pots.
