Whether you want to enhance patios, porches and decks, or if you have limited gardening space, then container gardening is a great solution. When planning your container garden, select plants that are suitable for containers. These may be dwarf or compact varieties, or flower bulbs and perennials that are known to grow well in containers. Next, make sure have suitable patio pots or containers with proper drainage. Most plants don't like waterlogged conditions. Other considerations when buying plants for sale online are their hardiness zone, sunlight requirements (full sun, partial shade or full shade), mature height and spread, pruning or maintenance needs, flower or foliage color, and bloom time.
