Container Gardening Tip:

Good Drainage

No matter what kind of container you end up using, plastic, terra cotta, ceramic, or metal, make sure it has holes in the bottom of the pot.

Putting rocks or gravel in the bottom will not help because with no holes, the water will simply pool and the plants will rot.

Gardening-tip:



Low Light House Plants

Many plants thrive on very little light, making them ideal for those parts of your house that are not well lit.

A couple good choices for areas without lots of light are:

Aspidistra
Dracaena
Sansevieria
Chinese Evergreen

For more information about this, watch our video on low light houseplants in the video tips section!
