5. Consider Planting Containers
When space is at a premium, such as small flats, look to using containers – you can use virtually anything in them, including vegetables, herbs, flowers, fruit trees, berries, and shrubs.
When gardening in containers, use a pot that’s large enough for the plant it’s hosting, and fill it with a quality all-purpose soil mix. Not only is it specially formulated to help plants in pots thrive, but it also helps protect against over-and-under-watering.
6. Choose The Right Plants
It’s important to select plants that match your growing conditions which means putting sun-loving plants into a sunny spot, choosing heat-tolerant plants in warm climates, and giving ground-gobbling vines like pumpkins and melons ample elbow room (or a trellis to climb).
Do your homework and pick varieties that will grow well where you live, space you have and to get a step up on success when growing veggies and herbs, start with vigorous young plants from quality plant suppliers instead of trying to grow from seed.
