We were planting container gardens the other day and got in all sorts of trouble. The issue is that one of our best friends has a ‘perfect’ patio that is full of amazing planters. There are huge tropical plants – there are amazing hanging baskets – there are patio pots full of flowers and veggies and herbs. The garden is great and it is very well taken care of by our buddy and every time we see the garden we want to do the same at home.
We really like to have some patio pots of veggies around the deck. Veggies add to the overall feel of summer and make a nice compliment to the flowers that occupy most of our patio pots. For those with balcony gardens you know that container veggies are the only way to get super-fresh, homegrown flavour.
