Container Gardening - A Simple Way to Grow Flowers and Vegetables in Small Spaces


This month's Wylam Branch Library program on container gardening was informative and fun. There are lots of books to help gardeners get ready for an easy way to grow vegetables and flowers. Container gardening enables gardeners to have much more control over their plants. Containers can be moved so that the gardener determines the sunlight, moisture, and temperature of their gardens. Container gardens are ideal for apartment dwellers.
