Container gardens are mobile and can be creatively arranged, a different combination every time. Many plants thrive mightily in containers and bring flair to the balcony or patio that lends a Mediterranean feel. Due to their usually small volumes, plants that grow in pots dry out more rapidly and won’t necessarily make it through a hot, waterless weekend. Lavender much prefers dry to moist, relatively poor soil to rich, and is therefore ideal for balcony and terrace owners who don’t want to ply the watering can daily.

Today, roses are in demand not only as cut flowers, but as one of the most popular flowering plants in the garden.
