  1. Hello Samantha,

    I am Stephanie from Steph’s Green Space and I do container gardening :-) Love the re-purposed containers in the first picture a lot. They are really pretty.

    You have a great day!

  2. I’m definitely a container gardener because I’m just “starting out,” I have limited space, and I don’t have the time to take care of more than four plants at a time. :p I definitely want to have a bigger garden in the future. I envy those who can grow herbs!
