There are certain times of the year when it becomes a little more difficult to do some traditional gardening, most notably during the winter. When this happens, gardeners are typically left with two choices. Those two choices are to first simply wait to begin doing the gardening when the weather begins to warm up a bit, or to take their garden inside. The best way to take your gardening inside is with what is called a container garden.
Basically, a container garden is another name for a type of terrarium. However, instead of having a completely closed container, like you may with a terrarium, you will be able to open this container. Keep in mind that since this is a winter container garden, that you will want choose items that will work the best during the winter months. While you can choose plants that grow year round and force them to grow out of season inside, it is always best (if not easier) to choose plants that grow best during the colder months. Here's how you can make a great winter container garden.
