2. When the outside temperature approach 80-90 degrees; in the sun (and shade) you may need to water a small container more than once a day. A garden container with more soil means your plants can grow a bigger root system. Plants with lots of roots tend to be healthy, happy plants.
4. Fertilizer is essential for having the best plant containers. Remember that with constant watering, nutrients are consistently leeching out of the soil of your beautiful container planting. On a regular basis, you should be feeding these plants -- unless they are plants that prefer low nutrient soil (such as lavender.)

Using various plants in a large planter design can be effective in a generous sized terrace garden planter or as a smaller focal point at eye level.
