Container gardening — growing plants in pots, window boxes, tubs and hanging baskets — is a simple and practical way to add blossoms, greenery, even edibles to living spaces, outdoors and in. Containers can be the striking focal point of small patios or can add texture, dimension and gorgeous color to even the grandest landscape. Looking to grow an herb or two on your balcony or add a welcoming arrangement by your front door? Is their a corner in a sunny room that would welcome a pine, a palm, or stately cactus? Potted plants let you grow where, and how, you wish.
