A great way to enjoy your plants without the added hassle of weeding is to pot them! They are less labour intensive than having to tend to a whole yard. There are really no restrictions when it comes to potting plants, so you can let your creative side take over! As long as the dirt remains in place and the water has the ability to drain out, you are able to use it for potting plants.

However, it is important to remember that above ground gardens get thirstier because they are not in the earth. Ensure you are giving them a regular soaking so they have the best chance at blooming.
