Get Growing: A Look at Container Gardening

May 11, 2017 08:50 PM

As gardeners look to get their plants in the dirt, garden expert Larry Pfarr says gardeners should consider what kind of containers they plan to use.

Pfarr said containers for flowers should be at least  10 inches wide. Pfarr said anything smaller than that will not hold enough soil.


For vegetables, Pfarr suggests using containers that are 12 to 15 inches wide. He also suggested watering containers for horses or cows for growing vegetables.

If gardeners do plan to turn to container gardening, Pfarr said all containers should have a drainage hole at the bottom.
