Potted Plants

There’s almost no restriction on what to use as a planter — as long as the dirt stays in and the water drains out, you’re good to grow. The roots will get thirstier since they aren’t in the Earth, so give your above-ground garden regular soakings; slow-release fertilizer encourages blooming all summer long.
