  • Fun Outdoor Chores for the Children

    Today, children play outside about half as much as their parents did. Instead, they prefer playing highly entertaining computer games, watching television and, in some cases even do their homework. These fun outdoor chores for the children will get them out of the house in no time.

  • Ornamental plants and de-icing salt

    Winter has made its way in the world. The roads are white, temperatures are low and really, all you feel like doing is sitting close to the fireplace while drinking a hot chocolate. Surely, the last thing on your mind is the garden that is now covered in snow. While the back yard might be anxiously awaiting spring, the front garden has to face up to a challenge. As you know year after year the city council has to sprinkle[…]

  • When to Plant Trees

    Trees do not need a big hole when they are planted, the average hole should be about three times as wide as the root ball and shallower. After you have placed the tree in the ground take a few steps back and make sure the plant is not leaning.

  • The Best Flowers to Grow in Full Sun

    The palette of flowers that grow in full sun is very wide. Before you start planting the flowers make a plan on where you are going to put them. Another important thing is to read on the label to which height they will grow in order to plant the sort plants in the front and the taller plant in the back. This type of flower needs a lot of sun, up to 8 hours per day of full sun.

  • Pruning ornamental grasses

    Ornamental grasses create a beautiful landscape full of colour and texture. Some of these grasses can provide interest all year long, even if it dries and the leaves and seed fall, they still can be an attraction for the fall and winter seasons. The ornamental grass needs pruning once or twice a year so that it may look at its best and to encourage the growth of new ones. Spring pruning means that you should ground your grass before new[…]

If you do not like to work in the garden, making rows for vegetables, the best alternative is to grow them in flower pots. First thing you have to do is pick vegetables which are appropriate for flower pots.

You must have in mind what space the vegetable chosen by you will need because you must pick the ones which will have room to grow and thrive. Usually for big pots people choose tomatoes or eggplants and for the smaller ones herbs or lettuce.

After you have chosen the vegetable and the proper pot find a location where the environment is proper for your choice. Check for their preferences online or read the label on the back of the seed container. Planting seeds in pots is not different that planting outdoors when it comes to the right period. You should plant your seeds the same way you would if you were to plant them outside, in your vegetable garden.

Make a mixture of three parts of garden soil with one part of pea moss and put it in the pot. This mix will provide the moist and the nutrition the vegetable is going to need.


Poke a hole of 1/8 inch into the soil and place the vegetable seed. After you have placed the seed in the hole cover it up with soil, water it and make sure the soil is moist until the seeds start to germinate. To make sure you place them deep enough into the ground check the package.

Once the seeds have started to germinate you must make sure they will not die and that they have enough nutrients. Water them once a day and provide them a mixture of plain water and fertilizer once a week.

Transfer the plants that have outgrown the pot they have been planted into a bigger one.


If you place the vegetable pots at the window make sure you turn them during the day so that the whole surface of the plant receives proper sunlight.

The majority of vegetables need up to eight hours of sun per day so be careful where you place them, find a spot where the sun is present almost the whole day.

If you don´t want your pot of vegetable to fall because of the weight of the plant make sure you place them in pots that are heavy enough to support them.
