Note: Before filling any container be sure you cover the drainage hole. We recommend a coffee filter. This will prevent your soil from leaking out of the pot.
Containers can dry out quickly, so you may need to water often in the summer. To lessen the need, mulch your containers or add water-absorbing polymers to the soil mix. Use a drip emitter system with a timer to make things even easier. Check your containers regularly to see if soil is getting to adequate amount of water.
You can plant just about anything, including vegetables, shrubs and trees, let your imagination create new an exciting ways to use containers !
