Container plants, in pots and tubs, are a terrific way to add interest and focus to your garden, ideal if you only have a small outdoor courtyard or patio. It’s important to follow a few simple routines to care for them to ensure the best displays through months or years. Choose the position for your container according to the plants that are in it. A lot like a spot in full sun that’s sheltered from winds, but others prefer a shadier place – check the label. Containers do need regular watering, sometimes twice a day in hot weather, and if you deadhead the flowers, more will replace them.
