Publisher's Summary

From pushing out pests to mapping out a beautiful, bountiful garden - this guide unveils all the secrets, how-tos, and common mistakes every first-time gardener needs to navigate!

How long have you been wanting to try your hand at gardening?

When you garden, you get the chance to improve your green thumb, enjoy fresh produce, and feel the fulfillment of caring for something. It’s no wonder why millions of people pursue it in their free time!

If you’ve tried gardening before, you might realize that it isn’t exactly a walk in the park. From watering and sunlight exposure - to fertilizer quality and mapping out planting layouts - caring for plants can be much more complicated than you’d expect.

In comes container gardening - a beginner-friendly solution to a newbie’s troubles.

If you don’t have the space, time, or budget to dive deep into developing and caring for an expansive garden, container gardening offers a way to care for plants without taking up hours of your time daily.

According to the National Gardening Association in the United States, about 1 in 3 American households grow food at home. That’s nearly 35% of American families!

If you’ve experienced problems or have struggled with keeping even the smallest of gardens alive, don’t fear - millions of people stand right beside you and have experienced similar situations!

As an alternative that is easier to maintain (but just as fulfilling!), container gardening holds a lot of practice and learning experiences for new gardeners!

In Introduction to Container Gardening, you will discover:

  • The seven best vegetables to grow in a container
  • How to avoid turning your herbs into yet another wilted failure - enjoy fresh flavors all year round
  • How you can reap the benefits of a well-cared-for container garden
  • Tips and tricks that even a first-time gardener will understand - and an expert green thumb will still benefit from
  • And a whole lot more!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Picking the right container for you

I’ve just moved into an apartment, and it honestly lacks some life. My only option is to do container gardening. By listening to this book, I have a much better understanding. Starting at the very beginning, picking the right container for me!

Grow bag

As a container gardener, you don’t often find information shared about growing plants in grow bags too – this is really refreshing as I often use both containers and grow bags to grow my plants in. Grow bags come in handy with cut offs or seedlings in particular.

From garden to table

As most gardeners, we all want to grow our own fresh produce and take it from garden to table essentially. This book provides great info on the different areas of container gardening – fruit, veg, flowers and herbs. Really useful!

My new reference guide

This book covers everything you wish to know about container gardening… the chapters are broken down in such a way that you can easily make reference to any one of them when needed. I really enjoyed the “troubleshooting common problems” as no gardeners journey is smooth sailing. Highly recommend.
