Throughout Zach’s Garden, you can learn about my experiences with container gardening, but I can learn even more from you, so please ask any questions or share your stories in the comments section after each write-up. Do you have a specific how-to question about getting started, or are you having trouble choosing what to grow?
About my garden
I live in Michigan, in USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 5B, which means our outdoor growing season is on the shorter side. That’s why everything I grow is in containers, perfect for the apartment dweller, but also to extend the growing season significantly. With our long winters, many people don’t realize that you can keep things like dwarf citrus trees growing year-round by bringing them indoors before the first frost. I hope this site inspires you to try out your green thumb.
