Dave Owens,The Garden Guy/Container Gardening

Container gardening is a great way to add more to your garden and home surroundings from using barrels to hanging baskets as décor. Making your own potting mix is a great way to start or buying it from any home improvement store is just as easy. When selecting your container be aware they it will need a lot of drainage, so lots of holes. The holes must be in the lower side of the container, not at the bottom where the holes can be blocked by debris. For a hanging basket, try lining the wire basket with Spanish moss and then fill it with your mixture. You can use a variety of flowers like primrose, freesia which gives off a scent, stock or geraniums. Flowers that do well in the shade to consider are begonias, Iceland poppies, petunias, and alyssum. Using large containers is ideal because they hold more soil and can stay moist longer vs small containers that will dry out fast. To help determine the size of container you want to start with consider what type of plant you will use first to gauge how big the roots can get, larger root balls tend to dry out faster so consider your options when preparing your containers.
