Although it’s the season to grow, gardening can seem intimidating for people who’ve never done it before.
Garden manager Laura Washington of the MOSAIC Pottstown Community Gardens said container gardening is a great option for beginners.
“It allows for gardeners to contain their garden in a small space,” she said.
Container gardening is also preferable for people with limitations such as arthritis in their knees, Washington said. People can place their carton on a stool or tabletop and work sitting down, she said.
