Container gardens are great for beginner gardeners, those with limited space, or anyone looking to brighten up their porch or patio. They can be planted with a single plant or a combination of plants depending on the look you want to achieve. Popular plants for tubs include flowers, herbs, vegetables, grasses, and succulents. Many gardeners seasonally rotate the plants they grow to ensure uninterrupted color year-round.

Garden pots come in a variety of materials and styles, so you’re bound to find something you like. Check out the articles below for tips and ideas for designing your own container garden.
