Enjoy these tips for container gardening. Don’t let the lack of space in your yard or the fact that you don’t have a yard keep you from Gardening. Even if you don’t have a yard, you can grow a small container garden on your porch, front step, landscaping or use vertical space for fresh vegetables and herbs.
Tips for container gardening:
- Carrots should be planted in the spring/fall and need partial shade.
