How to Make Container Gardening Work For You

No space? No problem! You don’t need a big garden to grow your own food; you don’t even need an outdoor area. You can grow your own herbs and vegetables from your windowsill.

All you need is a window that gets sunlight during the day and enough space in front of the window for a pot or two. You’ll be surprised by how many plants actually grow really well in containers. Here’s a short list of plants that do well in pots (but if bonsai has shown us anything, even a pine tree can grow in a small container).
