Garden of Containers is going to be a blog about my garden. My garden of containers. Maybe it will be interesting for other people who rent, or have limited space, or have poor soil or want to grow in containers for any other reason.

I have tried all kinds of garden containers over the years but my current favorite are the redwood planter boxes available at Home Depot.
