Containers - Gardening for the Uncommitted

I said yesterday that I'm not a very enthusiastic gardener.  And that's true, when we're talking about working on open ground.

Container gardening is different, somehow.  It's more manageable.  More temporary.  Easier.

Plus it's a great excuse to buy up more rusty bits of junk...

what lovely 'pots' :)

I find potted plants harder to manage than ones in the ground - I either over- or under-water them!

Pots dry out so quickly, I find it nearly impossible to over water...

And they're so much easier to weed!
