Gardening – at any scale – is a rewarding hobby, but it takes a lot more work than many realize! Whether starting from seed or sprout, when starting a new grow for the season, you’ll have to get your hands dirty. The most important thing is the soil; before anything happens the soil needs to be tilled, amended, pH tested, and fertilized. This is all before the plants even get near the garden – that’s when the digging really begins!
After the plants have gotten in the ground, it’s months of watering, weeding, fighting off pest infestations, and sometimes adding more plants as the season continues. These new additions can be added to the existing garden, or may be added to containers in other areas around the yard – either to increase yields or for aesthetic reasons; such as annual flowers or a decorative tree.
Because planting in a container means that you’ll be able to use the soil mixture of your choice, the work of digging and amending isn’t an issue – but deciding on the best containers for your new plants can be. The reason for this is that it’s sometimes tempting to go for the prettiest terra-cotta containers to add ‘style’ to the garden, often at the expense of a plants’ health.
Though inexpensive, terra-cotta pots have issues that can affect your plants: they break easily, which will necessitate transplanting an established plant; They can have drainage issues if they were made without holes in the bottom, which can lead to root-rot; Water passes through the walls fairly quickly in a terra-cotta pot, which means the soil dries out quickly and you’ll need to water the plants more frequently, and; The clay used is sensitive to the freeze and thaw cycles of the seasons, and so they’re prone to cracking and breaking after a short amount of time.
