Container Gardens

Plants are great. They’re pretty, they bring fresh air, and they add a bit of class to your decor. But how can you have plants if you don’t have a garden? The solution is trending: container gardening.

Container gardens are perfect for indoor gardens, balconies, porches, and anywhere you want to easily put a few plants. Containers can be anything from the traditional terracotta planters to fancy, multi-layered containers. Some containers are even upcycled goods — rainboots, birdcages, wheelbarrows, and wooden baskets are all popular choices.

But what to grow? Well, that depends. If you have a wide backyard or balcony that gets lots of sunlight (like at your suite at Stone & South), pick sun-loving plants that have lots of colour or succulents that don’t need much watering. If you’re creating a low-light indoor garden, pick plants that do well without natural light or pick up a few grow-lights to help your plants along.

For a designer-esque container garden, choose a variety of blooms, dangling plants, and ground cover for your space. This method is called the ‘thriller’, ‘filler’, and ‘spiller’ approach. Or just grow what you love and enjoy the fresh air!
