CONTAINER GARDENING...

  1. Cool! I too love container gardening. It just time is my limit for now. Having a student life really crank my time as a gardener. Although living in a quarters also part of the limiting factors for me.

    Wish you the best in container gardening. Can't wait to see the whole result.

  4. Look like you will be busy with transplanting. Growing chives from seeds a bit difficult. I also tried many times and seeds germination was rather poor. Chives seeds need to be fresh for good germination. Most of the allium family are like that. But after several attempt of getting seeds to germinate and grow, you will be very happy and satisfied.

  7. I love container gardening too. It gives you a certain "flexibility" - you can buy more pots when you need (want) them, and you can re-arrange the ones you have whenever you feel like it.
