Container Gardening Fun

Celebrity Container Gardening Crew

Do we have fun or what?  Last month our Bucks County Master Gardener Container Garden Committee created three beautiful container gardens in front of our building at Neshaminy Manor Center. They even made their own hypertufa container for the succulent display! 

Container gardening is a superb option for those with limited space, time and/or mobility. You can grow just about anything in a container, from decorative plants like those in the photo, to veggies like tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and squash!  Check out this link from Penn State Extension about growing veggies in containers:

If you'd like to know more about container gardening, get in touch with one of our Bucks County Master Gardeners at 215-345-3283 or and we'll get you started with instructions and information from Penn State Extension.

  1. Container gardening is indeed fun! But it's even more than that - it helps you save space if you have a small garden, it allows you to grow anything you want despite of the soil in your garden, and many plants look great in pots. Growing plants in containers also opens lots of space and helps you create a unique outlook for your garden.
