5 Reasons to have your Garden in Pots: Do not think twice

Very good to all Agrohuerters, today I wanted to tell you a little about the benefits of having a garden in pots or flowerpots for our domestic routine. The benefits of a potted garden, no matter how small, are many and very healthy for the whole family, I will highlight the ones that in my opinion are the most important after having already created and harvested my flowerpot.

You don’t need a large space to enjoy a very healthy hobby.

1. Self-consumption of food

In this society in which we live we are exposed to a number of chemical agents, preservative gases or edible waxes. Many of these products are necessary for the correct conservation and transport of food from the field to your table, they are inert, edible and do not represent health risks…

But when it comes to consuming them, they always give a certain insecurity, which is why we always wash the lettuce before making it into a salad, even though it says on the label that they are organic… It also depends a lot on the origin of the food and the transformation processes it has undergone… Indistinctly, By collecting your own food from your potted garden, you avoid this insecurity, you know exactly what you are consuming and what products you have added, giving peace of mind and satisfaction to your dishes.

Here I show you a small harvest of padrón peppers, totally organic and produced in my garden in pots.

2. Organic production

We all know the benefits of organic products, they are quality food, 100% free of chemical agents that are produced respecting the environment, but many times it is difficult to find them in the supermarket or their price is too abusive. When starting a garden in pots by sowing organic seeds, you can always have some lettuce or carrots several times a year, without too much work and without leaving home.

3. Money saving

As little as we get out of a potted garden is savings, it all depends on the space you have and how many pots you want to plant… In the long run, the investment in pots, seeds and substrates will be negligible compared to the vegetables you are going to collect.

4. Entertainment and anti-stress

Having a potted garden invites you to create your natural space, a Zen corner full of plants where work becomes relaxed and tranquility reigns. Whether inside or outside the home, this leisure space translates into silence and peace…

Very calmly you will dedicate the necessary time to the care of your pots and when you finish you will feel much clearer and free from the daily routine. This hobby also has a great final reward in the form of personal satisfaction from being able to collect and consume the food that we have been caring for for so many months, thus enjoying the quality and safety of organic food with little effort.

5. Educational values

I believe that this is the most important point when creating a potted garden, since the educational benefits for the little ones in the house are almost more important than those that they bring us ourselves…

By having a garden in pots, the most urbanite children discover for themselves where the vegetables they eat come from, they learn that they are not bought in the supermarket but rather that they come from a plant that they have watered themselves, which also gives them values ​​of love and care for nature and its environment.

Taking care of and collecting potted vegetables from the garden makes them more willing to eat them and keeps them distracted without using the tablet or the television. It also teaches them to be responsible for a task by having to water the plants every day and they will see the results of their work and perseverance when the first vegetables grow…

The little ones will learn to enjoy vegetables and vegetables.

Conclusion of growing in pots

Potted gardens are a differentiating element that give us a lot in very little space.

It is not necessary a high investment or a lot of skill with the plants to start with one, the experience we acquire with each harvest allows us to improve it by expanding with new pots or trying new more complicated crops, with which we will always have a variety of safe, cheap and ecological.

We will have a space for relaxation and well-being where we will spend time taking care of our garden or decorating our pots, and the little ones in the house will learn a lot by eating healthy.

I hope you start with your garden in pots following the advice that we leave you on our YouTube channel, right now I am collecting a lot, I have had a problem with pests such as whiteflies, but nothing serious with the advice of the blog…

So nothing, a strong greeting and any questions ask us!
