Answer: Nearly every plant will adapt to container growing. Choose containers with adequate drainage holes and fill with potting soil. For really big containers (half whiskey barrels, etc.) you can mix half garden soil and half potting soil to fill them. The potting soil drains well so be sure to use it in smaller containers. You can grow roses and small shrubs as well as annuals and perennials in containers. You may need to water containerized plants more frequently than plants in the ground because they are more exposed to sunshine. Water throughly as often as necessary. You can check the soil moisture by sticking your finger down into the potting soil. If it is still moist an inch or two beneath the soil surface you won't need to water for another day or two. If it is dry, it is time to water. Best wishes with your container garden!
