Team Containers or Team Ground?

Posted by @Trish on
This week the topic is container gardening. Team Containers love to utilize containers, and Team Ground would rather just use the ground. Share your experiences with us!

Like most of our topics, it's tempting to say that you are on Team Both, but let's take it a little bit further.

Team Container is for those of us who love container gardening- either because they are forced to use containers for their gardening, or just because you smile every time you put together a new container in your garden or when you walk by one that has been growing there for years. The Container Team is passionate about their containers.

Now, on to Team Ground. While this team may have a container or two planted, they vastly prefer being on Team Ground. Containers can be diffiicult and intimidating.

For me, I'm on Team Wishful Containers. I love the look, and wish I had more in my gardens. However, the practicallities have stopped me. You see, I keep a container here and there, but by the end of the year, I've killed the Boston Fern, Geranium, and petunias. Anything on my porch is in danger of dying of thirst sooner rather than later. I love containers but need ideas and inspiration. So, for you team Containers, give us your tips and help us join your team!
