It is well known that plants grow and flourish at different times of the year. This is especially true in regards to vegetables and, if you are new to gardening, it can be difficult knowing when to plant. Some plants, such as tomatoes and onions, should not be planted in containers directly as the seeds are at risk of rotting before being given the chance to sprout. Plants with this requirement should be planted indoors and allowed to grow for up to 2 months before being transplanted to larger containers. In order to cultivate a successful container garden and receive a bountiful harvest, follow our planting guide below.
