Yep, containers work..
And what type of container works, depends on
what you want to grow, and what kind of container you want really..
I grow veggies, and here's one in a big round
pop container bucket I get at the Dollar General or Family Dollar or Walmart's for about $6~8 bucks.. put a couple of holes in the bottom and filled with potting soil, garden soil, compost, vermiculite, etc. and grow peas..
but you can have wooden boxes, or grow boxes, or
And if you have a problem with the containers dryin' out, if the container is plastic, you can always put a diaper in the bottom..
*but make allowance for the diaper to expand really big when water fills up the polymere crystals.., or it will push everything out of the pot when it fills up, if you didn't wet them and let them expand first**
But you can also buy a package of polymere crystals and mix them into the lower 3/4 of the dirt of the container.. ***you don't want the polymere crystals in the top 1/4 part, because they fill with water and you don't want the plants
roots to go to the top where they can be too hot and dry out toooo fast....you want them to go to the bottom where they can remain moist and cooler..***
