No matter how young or old a person if you love gardening this love will never disappear. What will unfortunately go is the ability to look after a garden; whether due to health or simply because a new home may not have a garden of its own.
There is however a way that you can still enjoy the simple pleasures of growing favourite plants (and even vegetables) and that is in containers. A small balcony or patio can be transformed with some beautifully planted pots whether they are brimming with flowers or full of Mediterranean herbs and salad leaves, it is just a question of following some simple rules.
Choose your container wisely
Start at the bottom and build up
Get the best compost
Tend with Loving Care
