My Dear Friends,
I consider myself an amateur gardener. I love that every time I go outside to water or tend to my plants, I feel a small sense of pride in what I've managed to grow. I don't have an outdoor garden, all of my plants are in pots & planters. My yard isn't the best place for a garden as it doesn't drain well plus we have a dog that would most likely tear everything up. Using pots & planter is a perfectly great solution for me, though, as I've found some really great products that suit my needs just fine.
Take these strawberry & potato planters, for example. These pots take away any of the hard work - it saves you weeding, it saves
you putting down straw, it makes it harder for slugs to reach your
plants and by covering with netting when the plants are in fruit the birds won’t be able to eat them.
If you're having trouble keeping birds, animals or other pests out of your garden, you may consider getting a fruit & vegetable cage. These cages not only keep pests away, they give stability to your growing plants.
