When we asked our readers how many of them had an interest in gardening in containers, a staggering 75 percent of them said they did. There could be two reasons for the popularity for this type of gardening. First, regardless of the size of your gardening space, you can grow plants in containers. Second, no matter where you live in the country, be it the arid Southwest or the humid Southeast, there are many plants that will thrive in pots in your climate. That is why we've chosen gardening in containers as the topic for our first special-interest issue of Fine Gardening. We've selected articles that were not only our favorites, but also those that our readers found most helpful and inspiring.
