The Container Garden Comeback

The Container Garden Comeback

Veggie Garden

In 18th & 19th Century France, Parisians were well known for keeping compact gardens on their doorsteps, balconies, rooftops, and even windowsills. These “Potager”, also known as kitchen gardens, were adapted to small city spaces by growing plants in pots and urns which could easily be accessed and moved, and also provided a bounty of fresh food and a touch of green in the cityscape.

But container planting isn’t just for urban spaces, and certainly not just for the French! Growing herbs, produce, and flowers at your doorstep has a myriad of benefits. With an abundant selection of pots and containers available today, your little garden can take on just about any style you prefer. Traditionally we think of containers as flowerpots for floral displays, but creative gardeners are also incorporating herbs and compact vegetable plants into their container gardens for a versatile effect. Keeping a little garden close to your kitchen, walkway, or window also makes it easier to tend to your crops and further reap their benefits. Plus, if you pair flowers with veggies and herbs in a container you will create a compact garden that is not only useful for producing food, but also creates a beautiful display.

Weston Nurseries has a large selection of containers available in a wide variety of materials and finishes, from traditional terra cotta and glazed ceramic, to state of the art compact growing systems for new veggie gardeners. We’ve got everything you need to start your own kitchen garden, “Potager”, or container planting- sure to please both floral designers and vegetable gardeners alike.
