What plants should I grow for my patio container garden this spring?
This month, I'm planning to add two patio chairs and maybe a table for my empty patio of my new apartment. I'm also planning to grow some plants, maybe some herbs and veggies and some flowers that would help with cleaning the air. Any ideas on what's easy to manage and grow for a beginner?
Pansies are easy flower to grow and they seem to survive anything.
I like to grow mint, it is easy and there is a good chance that it will continue to come back year after year.
I have a pot on my back porch that is 2 feet wide. In it I have 2 large elephant garlic, arugula, basil, and lettuce. They will grow together very easily. It is a deep pot so the roots will have plenty of space. They require little to no effort. They only need a small amount of sun each day and some evening water. In another pot I have cherry tomatoes. All are fairly simple to grow. I don't do much flower growing so I have no advice in that department. I prefer growing stuff that can save me money! Another added benefit of growing basil other than being able to cook with it, it smells amazing! You can also get it in a beautiful purple variety to bring some color to your porch.
It depends on if your pot will get a lot of sun nor not. If it does, I have one that I found begonias and coleus leaves grow very well together and if it's in the shade, impatiens do really well.
