Container Gardening
Posted by Erin from GA on 2001-04-09 13:49:00

Hello! I am limited in terms of my gardening space. Does anyone have any recommendations for container gardening? I have some petunias and impatiens in pots, but don't know what else to plant.

Please help!!

    Dwarf Marigold, Nasturtium, Zinnia, Cosmos Cosmic Orange/Yellow are all relatively compact, easy to grow and highly colorful. You can make a nice contrast of colors by adding blue/purple lobelia, white alyssum, or some ivy to your current container. Good luck!
