How My Container Garden Grows

April 13th, 2009 at 06:19 pm

So I think that I'm doing well with the container garden. Out of the seeds, I've got several plants growing. I may have over-planted the tomatoes. But I'm ok with that as I'm not 100% sure that they're all gonna survive being transferred from the container of seedlings to bitter pots.

Wish I had pics, but the camera's still out for repairs Smile

Anyway, I was able to borrow some big plastic containers from my friend's dad's shed. I'm going to clean them off this weekend and try to transfer some of the plants. Its not quite warm enough to put them outside, but I'll acclimate them when I have a chance.

In the meantime, I've been reading Container Gardening for Dummies and watching How To videos online.

I've never grown anything before and other than my bamboo plant, I've killed everything I've tried.

But now I have 2 house plants in addition to the bonsai and all the veggie plants and herbs! Yay Smile

I've bought some containers and gardening supplies (gloves, tools, hooks for hanging the plants, ect) from the dollar store and I'll have to purchase some more potting soil. But overall, this hasn't been an expensive enterprise - maybe $15.00? - and I'll be able to reuse all the containers next year.

And to be honest, even if it WAS a little more expensive, it'd be worth it. I'm getting such a kick outing getting things to grow. I'm very proud of myself!

    Well done !!

    I'm in the same shoes !! Just moved into an apartment with a balcony and am planning to grow lettuce and strawberries on it this year....

    Bought strawberry growing kit yesterday... I think it'll be 2 yrs before I get any fruit... but it will be worth it !!

    Also got a mushroom growing kit - for indoors !

    Will try to get my hands on that book u mentioned !!

    Good Luck !! :-)

    I love gardening. I am also kind of bad at keeping things alive. I think I give everything too much TLC.
