Modern homeowners often find it difficult to build a garden area. Yes, they can hardly stand out from their busy schedule. However, the shortage of space in their homes also plays an important role in why they cannot invest in gardening. You should take the restrictions into account, but never be discouraged!
Growing flowers in pots can turn out to be the perfect solution you are looking for. You have the choice to plant a variety of flowers that can only grow in pots or containers. Pot arrangements also add a nice touch to the garden bed.
Let's take a step-by-step look at how you should create an aesthetically pleasing and eye-catching flower pot garden:
# 1. Plan ahead to make the most of the available space. It is therefore important that you ensure that the lighting conditions are perfect and that the plants get no more or no less. Enlarge the room with hanging pots, window containers and shelves.
# 2. The pots should be big; at least large enough to have suitable drainage holes and to accommodate the growing roots of the plants. While plastic pots are light and easy to use, terracotta pots look beautiful and provide good insulation and air circulation for the roots. So choose the pots carefully.
# 3. Buy pots with different heights and diameters. You must also take into account the height of the plants, their colors and also their types. While lavender or thyme are complemented well by eye-catching petunias, tall flowers such as snapdragon are good for ivy and pansies. In addition, nasturtiums, marigolds and marigolds can easily attract useful insects because they glow in bright colors.
# 4. To fill the pots, it is important that they contain garden soil mixed with compost and sand. It is also important to fertilize the plants at least once a week in the summer and spring months. You also need to make sure that the pots are properly watered. Pottery plants dry earlier and by watering them well, they not only bloom, but also keep the pest away.
Keep these 4 points in mind, and creating a flower pot garden is as easy as walking in the park.
