*Disclosure: I was given a free copy of the book, “Beautiful, Desert Pots” in return for my honest review.
In the desert, we are fortunate to be able to grow plants in containers throughout the entire year.
Of course, living in the desert does bring along its special challenges when it comes to gardening and growing plants in pots is no exception.
However, with the right pot, location, planting mix and plants – it is possible to grow a perfectly lovely container filled with thriving plants.
I like to think of potted plants as a way to decorate your outdoor space with both color and texture. They also offer the flexibility to change out plants easily for a different look as well as the ability to move the pots around to new locations.
A pot filled with plants is nothing short of a miniature garden in a confined space.
I hope that these photos of lovely potted gardens help to inspire you to get out there and create your own.
To help get you started, I highly recommend the book, “Getting Potted in the Desert”, written by Marylee Pangman, Tucson resident who has over 20 years of experience growing potted plants in the desert. She is a certified Master Gardener and ran her own company, “The Contained Gardener”, where she designed and maintained container gardens for clients for years.
