It's also a good way to keep a record of your garden plantings for each year.

Container gardening is enjoyable for those gardeners who have very little gardening space, or no room at all. It is also a great way to garden for those who don't have a lot of time to maintain a flower bed. For one, there is very little weeding to do. Containers are also a great addition to entry ways, patios, decks, and even a flower garden. All can be enhanced by the beauty of a pot full of blooming annuals.
