Garden Pots and Planters from The Home & Garden Centre

Container gardens are a wonderful way to introduce plants to your garden. These low maintenance gardens are ideal for those with limited time. These garden planters can be used as herb garden pots, vegetable garden pots or garden flower pots and can be moved and positioned around your garden creating splashes of colour or a home grown treat where you need it most.

Outdoor garden planters are ideal for those with limited time for weeding and general garden maintenance. The plants, vegetables or flowers are contained in the patio pots limiting the space they can grow into and making them more manageable.

These patio containers are often used for first time vegetable gardening or as a handy place to plant a herb garden.

Raised Garden Beds – Easy gardening

Like container gardening pots, raised beds help to section off the growing area in your garden. These can be raised gardens that are garden beds that are literally contained in a 6 or 7 inch border or raised garden beds that are on a higher platform.

Raised Gardening beds that are on platforms are ideal for those with back problems and are often used to allow wheelchair users to enjoy gardening more easily. They can be raised up to a height that suits the end user making them easy to access.

Similarly garden troughs and garden planters can be used to provide a more accessible gardening environment.

Raised vegetable beds and herb gardens help to keep your vegetables and herbs in a separate growing environment from your other plants. This means that you can introduce nutrients and soil changes needed for better crops without damaging existing flowers and plants.
