This flexibility in design is another reason container gardening is popular with growers. They can be found on porches, front steps, and in urban locations, on rooftops.

Potting material must be loose and allow drainage to offer proper aeration for roots to breathe, preventing root rot.

Plants are usually re-potted according to the size of their root system.
