Many people who love fresh vegetables, herbs, and flowers live in apartments or condos and don't have a backyard in which to garden. A simple and rewarding solution can be growing plants in containers. No matter where you live, no matter how small your space, anyone can build a beautiful container garden. And depending on your climate, you can grow almost anything in a container garden.
Small and compact, you can put a container on your balcony or deck, or in a sunny window. By confining the plants to a relatively small space, maintenance can be less of a chore. And plantings can be moved to various sites for different purposes and then moved back. But a container garden does not have to sit on the patio or deck. Many people hang containers from a ceiling or against a wall. This is called "vertical gardening".
