Now that spring time is finally here to stay, the weather is warming up, and the days are becoming longer, our daily routines are shifting. Instead of staying inside to avoid the cold, we are looking for any excuse to get outside and soak up that sweet sunshine.
This spring season is the perfect time for you to start your container gardens, if you have not done so already! You can grow oh so many beautiful plants; the excitement of seeing that first new growth is truly irreplaceable. Keep reading to learn about 10 benefits to starting a container garden this spring.
Why a Container Garden?
For those of you who are tried and true raised bed gardeners, or those who have never even gardened at all, it makes sense to wonder, why start a container garden now? The reality is that growing gardens in containers gives you almost complete control over the environment of your growing plants. That is to say, the weather is no match for you; you can always keep your garden safe.
Container gardens are also great for any space. Even if you have a large outdoor area, a back patio, a front porch, or a fire escape – a container garden, or many container gardens, can fit and thrive in these spaces. You can truly container garden anywhere that has a handful of sunlight and a lot of love.
Finally, with less trips to the grocery store, and less support of unhealthy commercial growing techniques, growing your own garden at home is a step towards a greener lifestyle. Support the environment by starting your garden today!
Gardening is Good for You
Do not let it be lost on you that starting a garden will indeed make you happier. Regardless of your bounties at the end of the season, the experience of growing and tending to your very own garden is one that is inexplicably fulfilling; it warms you from the inside out by soothing your mind, body and soul. Gardening is truly so good for you.
