Looking to improve your container garden or even just get started?

Welcome to Soak and Soil! You have come to the right place!

Growing flowers, plants, and vegetables in tight spaces can be challenging... how big a container do I need? What soil is best? Where can I get the best sunlight?

Not to worry! Gardeners of all types have been using containers to garden since clay pots were invented. Generations of practical knowledge can get passed on through communities like these.

Gardening with containers can be just as fun and rewarding as if you had your own 40 acres to work with!  With the help of a community of gardeners at your finger tips, it is easier than ever!
