Container gardening is a highly versatile means to bring gardening into otherwise inconvenient spaces.  For Atlanta gardens there are a number of uses for gardening containers. Container gardening allows the gardener to move and rearrange the garden layout, and bring gardening into otherwise unplantable areas

  • Bring fresh cooking herbs onto decks and patios for cooking and outdoor grilling.
  • Use to have perennial plants and flowers always in bloom, bring out when in bloom, and pull to rear when not.
