My favorite type of gardening is the one that grows in pots. Well, let us just say any object that will reasonably hold soil, a plant and some water. Well, let’s skip the reasonable part.
As you can see, when I say anything that is what I mean. A suitecase is not out of bounds. Especially when it means something to me, a story behind it.
Christmas lists of book titles are another good source, even if the gift giver and receiver will be one in the same. You may not find a gardening book focused on containers but tucked in may be some practical ideas, anyways.
Reading garden books does lead to more of that stay gardening life.
