For the past five years, while away at college, I have been living in an apartment, subject to not being able to have a nice large garden or nicely landscaped yard of my own. Being a horticulture major and future landscape designer (not to mention a HUGE plant lover!) this was a bit frustrating to me. Luckily there is such thing as Container Gardening! This opened up so many options for such a small space to work with. Whether you are a fellow apartment resident or even a homeowner with a nice landscape to work with, container gardening is a great option for everyone! I have included in this post how to have a successful container garden and given examples of containers I have made for my apartment patio.
