What plants are in a dish garden


What plants are in a dish garden? They are in the border, around the house, or maybe they are an ornamental tree. To me, a dish garden is often a combination of a house with just a few planted beds. Here in the west, we love our edible plants. If we can grow a tomato, we do. Our kitchen gardens often contain at least one of everything including plants like purple basil and broadleaf lettuce. If you don't think about growing a huge garden to fill your home with food, chances are you haven't begun to understand how easy a bed or two can be to fill with everything from radishes to zucchini. This is the realm of the container gardening for busy families. The idea is that you can enjoy fresh, beautiful, and fun-filled vegetables in a window box, patio container, or your spare corner.

How many of you think about how a pepper, potato, or carrot looks when you buy it? Unless you grew it yourself, how can you know whether you will get one that is huge, beautiful, juicy, and tasty? This is where gardening in containers comes in handy. We can plant our vegies in pots, a window box, or even a planter. Some might think that container gardening is not for them because their pots aren't big enough. You could take a simple pot or large window box and double or triple it in size by using those inflatable containers. Many of these are as affordable as a shopping bag from the grocery store. These multi-use inflatable grow pots will allow you to grow small, big, red, or blue bell peppers in the garden. They also can double as flower pots and hanging baskets.

Are you tired of growing only annuals in your garden? I believe a great dish garden also contains some herbs and greens. For me, a kitchen garden is where I can sit back and watch my favorite salad grow right before my eyes. You can grow just a few herbs or you can grow an herb garden. How can you not love having your own fresh Italian basil or mint in the pot? With these simple things you can have fresh, beautiful, and productive herbs to use in your favorite recipes.

My container gardening clients have this excitement that you only find when you're planting herbs and vegetables. It's that excitement of filling the garden with something so fresh that you could eat it. I grew a variety of herbs and vegetables in my first container garden and can tell you that they lasted a good 2 months with very little care. You don't have to have a large garden, a set of pots, or even a container if you don't want to. You don't have to have anything but the desire to grow your own food.

**Transplanting**

Yes, you can move your container garden to a different spot. Most plants can withstand cold temps with no issues. When you are taking a container into the garden, be sure to bring a lot of newspaper to make a cushion around the base of the pot or box. You can also bring a couple of large rocks that you can use as a foundation.

**Flowers**

We have so many flowers and other plants in our flower pots that we feel like they are part of the flower garden. And in fact they are! There are very specific growing guidelines for a "floral" garden. The pots should be about the same size as the pots we usually grow in our beds. They need to be at least 6 to 8 inches deep. Flower pots should be mixed in size to ensure a healthy mixture of blooms and to combat poor looking plants. Another benefit to mixing plants is that it will lessen disease issues. The top of your flowers should be filled with your soil to help prevent flowers from drying out or baking. This will also help hold moisture in the pots. The flowers don't need any fertilizer or water because they are mostly dormant in the summer. Water your plants in the fall and put out a bug guard to repel bugs.

The next area of your flower garden that you need to consider is your pot. When you go to buy your pots, keep in mind that you want to avoid plastic pots as much as possible. Many of the plastic pots will start rotting and give off an off-putting odor when the pot dries out. Even worse, plastic pots will give off phthalates. Phthalates are found in many toys, medicines, and plastics. It is not good for humans to be inhaling phthalates. If you want to have a beautiful flower garden that lasts and doesn't stink, then consider your pots and look for high-quality ceramic pots or pots made from glass. When it comes to moving your pots around, buy some pea gravel or a rock similar to the size of the container. Mix up your pots and gravel together to prevent pots from sliding around and making ruts in the ground. Place your pots in the center of your flower bed and put your gravel directly in the flowerbeds. Just keep it soft and add a little water to the pots as needed. You will be pleased with how your garden will look in springtime with lovely blooms and rich soil.

**Perennials**

When it comes to perennials, I suggest two different rules of thumb. The first rule is that perennials can withstand much cooler temperatures, at least 8 degrees. Of course, you still need to give your perennials a little help with those chilly winters. If you have a low humidity and you can store your perennials in an unheated basement, they should be fine. After that, the second
